6 Week Course for Parents of Middle and High School Teens

Discover what High School Counselors and College Admissions are NOT telling you!
Debt-Free college IS more than possible. It's Doable!

What is Cracking the Code to Free College?

Cracking the Code to Free College is a 6-week online program for U.S. parents of college-bound middle through high school students. College costs are high but college expenses don’t have to be. 600,000 college students graduate debt-free every year. What are they doing that the rest of us don’t know about? This course is the culmination of thousands of hours of research and takes you through the steps that put your teen in a position to achieve their goals without being saddled with monstrous student loan debt. 
Begin the course as early as middle school with strategies that build on your teen’s abilities, character, and values. Design your teen's high school experience, and build your teen’s brand to answer the question, “What are college admissions and scholarship committees looking for?” They’re looking for you! Create the perfect high school to college CV and resume. Don’t leave money on the table! Discover where to find scholarships your teen has the best chance of winning. How to navigate national databases and avoid scholarships scams. Thinking outside the box: 50 ways to find money for college. What does it take to write the winning essay? And marketing your teen for college admissions.

"I contacted Denise on a referral from a friend. Since it was December of my son's senior year and he was already accepted to his college, I thought all I needed was help in finding scholarships to fill the gap. "So, can I just take the scholarship course?" Denise explained that finding scholarships is easy. Winning them takes strategy. I signed up for the full Cracking the Code to Free College course but she made me promise to NOT SKIP steps!
All I can say is, she's a genius! "

Thinking of Using Your Retirement Investments for Your Kid's College Fund?

Probably not a good idea. The average public university cost of attendance is just over $100,000. While it may not seem like a big deal to withdraw $100,000 or so, the impact is a loss of more than $800,000 to your retirement.

What would your child's life look like with ZERO student loan debt?

Time for hobbies and Interests.

"Adventure is worthwhile."

Time with family.
"Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend." ~Theophrastus

Freedom to live the life they were meant to live.

Give your child the gift of TIME, TRAVEL, FAMILY, and FREEDOM!

Yes! I often hear parents repeating the myths that have kept our young adults in student loan debt for decades... Myths such as

"We Make Too Much Money. My kid won't get anything."

Not true! The majority of academic or merit scholarships are usually not tied to family income. (We were making 6-figures when my teens won all that moolah!) But the earlier you begin, the more opportunities there are. There are scholarship deadlines every month and they begin in kindergarten! Get Started Now!

"Only geniuses win scholarships."

Actually, the majority of scholarships don't ask for GPA or test scores. Answering a simple essay question is often all it takes.
