Our Story

SpanOne was founded with a simple goal of helping high school students achieve their college goals…find the best college for them to thrive, a plan to position themselves to get in, and the best financial option to pay for it. There’s greater competition than ever for the college of your choice. Tuition keeps rising with a myriad of options for financial aid. It’s all more complex with the need to prepare earlier than ever. An expert college counselor and early college planning can help you achieve your college goals.

What Parents Are Saying About Our College Counselors

"We started working with a SpanOne advisor in our son's sophomore year. It was one of the best decisions that we ever took. Our advisor is not only helping our son plan and prepare for college, but also brought a sense of confidence and calmness to a very anxious situation."

"As a parent of international student, I was not fully aware of the process and competitiveness associated with getting into top colleges in the US. Our SpanOne Advisor, Ms. Christine, guided us step by step through the complete college research and applications. To our surprise, our son got into top rated undergraduate business school, his first choice. I have already recommended SpanOne to some of my friends."
