What Others Are Saying...

I have got to tell you about the good people at Peachtree College Planning! They are the most wonderfully kind, patient and knowledgeable group of people. With them, you get a twofold plan which includes the college planning part and the financial part. The college application process has changed immensely since I was in school and I am relieved and thankful to have the Peachtree College Planning team looking out for me and my kids during this exciting and nerve wracking time….I highly recommend them!

We’ve met with a lot of independent college counselors and reviewed their programs. When our son was a junior we met Stuart and decided to use Peachtree College Planning. Three years later our son is still happy at his chosen college, and we are exactly on track with the “Plan to Pay” that Stuart helped us create. I’m 100% certain that the ‘plan to pay’ creation alone paid for the investment we made in the service. Since then they’ve grown their team and expanded their services. I can highly recommend Peachtree College Planning.

Stuart and David are so helpful. They literally walked me through the few questions on the FAFSA form that I needed help with. They asked if I had any questions and told me to feel free to reach out to them at any addition point that I needed help I would highly recommend this office for college planning.

Stuart responded to my questions when I was in a last minute panic state. He saved me from a lot of stress and confusion! I appreciate not only the fact that Stuart responded quickly, but also that I immediately had a lot of confidence in him. He explained things to me very clearly and introduced some ideas for me to explore that I know will be very helpful. Although there will be limited ways that Stuart can help us for our first college-bound child, we are onboard for doing some more advanced planning with our youngest. Stuart's organization provides comprehensive college planning for all steps of the process. Don't think it's too early to look through the material and hop on a group list to receive helpful tips! You will be so glad when you are more prepared. Big thanks to Stuart at Peachtree College Planning.

We highly recommend Peachtree College Planning! We recently met with David Hughes to discuss our daughter's college search process. David was extremely personable and knowledgeable. He offered valuable information on the admissions process and talked us through the financial aspects of college as well. We left the meeting with an incredible amount of information and renewed hope that we could help our daughter achieve her dreams. David took a true interest in our family, and we look forward to working with him again. Thank you, David!

Stuart and his team are the real deal. I visit Peachtree College Planning because I wanted to give my daughter the best opportunities to pick a great college. Latina, female, I thought the scholarships would be rolling in, it doesn't work that way. There are scholarships out there, but full rides are few and far between. Thanks to Stuart, he gave me great tips, excellent advice, and provided me with resources to help during my daughter’s college admission and college financial planning processThank you Stuart!
