Welcome to North Shore College Consulting

North Shore College Consulting provides individual, comprehensive guidance through the college preparation, selection and application process.  We know that the college admissions process is complex and can be at times overwhelming, so our aim is to assist families through every phase, beginning as early as middle school. We recognize that no two students are identical.  Therefore we strive to develop a custom plan for each student based on their personal needs and aspirations. Our personalized attention ensures the right match is made between student and school, and our insight and in-depth knowledge of the process and of a wide array of colleges and universities across the country are certain to relieve your stress. We welcome the opportunity to work with you.


      When I started working with Amy and Debbie, I had no idea where I wanted to go or what was important to me in a school. I can't thank them enough for leading me through each step of this insane process, and helping see this as an opportunity to grow rather than a stress out. They are the most knowledgeable, supportive, and thoughtful people anyone could ask for!

          Amy & Debbie held our hands through the entire college search and application process. They introduced my son to schools that he never would have considered before and he was able to find the perfect match.

            Before hiring North Shore College Consulting the college search and application process was overwhelming for both us and our daughter.  Amy and Debbie helped our daughter narrow her college choices and kept her on a manageable but strict time schedule.  Their help was invaluable, and I have already recommended them to friends and colleagues.
