What Our Clients have to say
about the Career Assessment

“Their focus on finding a program for your child that will lead to a practical career track and is a good return on investment is unique. ”

Sheila D.

“It introduces young people to careers they never even heard of.”

Debra C..

“Their program gave us focus. It gave us direction.”

Rick M.

You need a higher education roadmap and you need a guide. OptimumEd is your College GPS.

Today, there must be an admissions plan. A plan that addresses the appropriate career direction, which drives academics, which drives the right college; and coupled with personal considerations and the financial circumstance so the family identifies the best fit school. No, there is no guarantee that the student will finish in 4 years, but if by better preparation the family can save just one semester of college, that represents a minimal saving of $11,000.

“While experimenting with majors in college isn't uncommon for college students, it can require a significant investment of time and money.”
— Jon Erickson, ACT President

It’s about knowing what you want to accomplish and putting a plan in place to achieve that goal. It’s also about being efficient in how we spend our higher education dollars. The Optimum Ed assessment is the foundation for both.
