Proper Preparation

We are in the business of giving students opportunities. It's no mystery that the college search and application process can be a bit overwhelming and we are here to simplify that process. From GPA requirements to campus life we have (almost) all of the answers!

Hands On

Our team works directly with students to ensure the most high touch experience possible. Answering late night e-mails and phone calls has become the norm.


We are proud to say that we have helped hundreds of students apply and be accepted to their dream school. Tap into our bank of knowledge and let us take the wheel. See a list of schools and scholars programs our students have been accepted to below.

Cindy Harlan MBA, MEd


After completing her Master of Education and Master of Business Administration, Cindy pursued her passion for working with students, providing them a comprehensive consulting service for conducting a successful college search process. She works with students ‘at the elbow’ to identify their unique college and career goals based on strength and interest profiles, academic records, skills, and course of study. Each student’s process is uniquely tailored to yield an appropriate fit. She works with students to plan testing timelines, develop resumes, brainstorm essay topics, identify admissions strategies and enhance time management skills while ensuring that students meet critical deadlines. She also works with families on applying for scholarships and financial aid. Cindy’s counseling is based on establishing a personal connection with each student. She works one-on-one to guide them through the process of preparing for and applying to colleges across the United States. Her expertise is working with students to identify schools that are a good fit both academically and socially, while monitoring and guiding them through the application process.

"I was so overwhelmed by the whole college application process. Cindy helped me over the obstacles and through the rings of fire. More than anything, Cindy gave me a peace of mind that I would have paid a million bucks for. Approaching something you know nothing about is a scary thing. College and Career Connections was worth every penny."
