Our college process was two-fold. It began with getting a jump start on the standardized testing, and not waiting until spring of junior year to focus. I believe our outcome was successful because we had a well-managed plan helped along by an expert, Janice Caine, of Custom College Visits. "Read more...

“Thank you SO MUCH for your involvement in the Splash Parents' Program this weekend! I am just reviewing the feedback forms, and your presentation received rave reviews across the board; many parents cited it as the highlight of the program for them! Some verbatim quotes include: ‘The Planning and Preparing for College Visits was a great eye opener;’ ‘The college presentation was very informative!’ ‘Parents' Program should have more talks like the 'Preparing For College Visits' presentation. Thank you for all the effort, energy, and enthusiasm you put into making the event such a success.”

Marisa M. Coordinator, Splash Parents' Program - Spring 2013

We had a wonderful trip to Philadelphia and Boston thanks to Janice Caine of Custom College Visits. She worked out an itinerary from start to finish. We visited 9 schools in 5 days and it was as smooth as possible. Janice worked out tours and information sessions as well as meetings with tennis coaches.We have boy/girl twins and both were happy which is not an easy achievement. Not only did Janice work out the schedule but she recommended great schools in both towns. We would highly recommend her.

Thank you again for being so good at what you do. Our trip to the US was a huge success. I was on the verge of cancelling the trip but knew I couldn't let my son down. That I even found you on the internet was a direct answer to my prayer for a miracle. 

The itinerary worked very well. I knew I was in good hands even before I boarded the plane to the US and your attention to detail far exceeded my expectation.

This past weekend I went to Flagstaff with Justin for his NAU orientation. He’s registered for his classes, which I can’t believe start next month. Guess he is now officially a Lumberjack! I think he will be happy there as I feel confident this is the right school for him. I reminded him that you were the one who suggested this school. He told me that if it wasn’t for you mentioning NAU to us, he doesn’t know what he’d be doing as he really didn’t like any other school we looked into except for Michigan State. But, we all felt it was too far for him to go. So, we are really grateful to you!!

Diane M – parent of college junior (transfer student)

“We have been working with Janice and Custom College Visits for over a year. When we began, my son had no idea where to apply. Janice's system to help choose the right type of college helped him narrow down his search to schools that would be a good match. She then created a custom itinerary for our college visits that was easy to follow and allowed us to see numerous schools in a short period of time. Once we had our final 20+ schools, Janice worked closely with us to fine tune the list of colleges to which my son will apply.

“I have two more children and many nieces and nephews that will be applying to college in the future. I wouldn't go through this process again without the amazing knowledge and guidance of Janice and Custom College Visits.”

Diane B. - Parent of high schooler

Getting to the colleges is harder than getting into them! It was my parents’ idea to work with Custom College Visits and I’m so glad I listened to them. Custom College Visits took everything I thought I wanted into consideration and created an absolutely perfect list of schools. When we received a full itinerary of our trip to the schools, it was awesome. Custom College Visits lowered my stress level so much and I recommended it to all of my friends.

Heather C. – Sophomore college student

Custom College Visits does a fantastic job from the initial conversation to when the letters start coming in. They are a one-stop resource for everything related to the college search process. Janice was so personable and friendly and proactive. I felt like she really cared about my daughter and her future as opposed to just being another "client" in her database. The service we received was totally personalized for us. We are about to start the process again with our son and I feel relieved and confident that we've got such terrific support coming from CCV during this phase.
