“Mr. Simon was nothing short of wonderful and helpful when it came to my college application process. I have completed my first year at NC State and many of the lessons and advice that Mr. Simon gave me regarding college and Christ have stayed with me and I am forever grateful for the impact he made in my life.“

Alexa M., Student: North Carolina State University

“Without my connection with Mr. Simon, I wouldn’t have taken my first step in the college application process as confidently as I did. With his help, I felt at ease during a time that is seen as the biggest challenge a high school student will face during their junior and senior year. He was able to transform what felt like a daunting process into a new perspective where the only limit was the sky itself. On top of it all, it felt as though I was talking to a friend rather than an advisor. I have Mr. Simon to thank through and through for what he did for me.“

David L., Student

“With Mr. Simon’s help, I was able not only to figure out the college admission process but he helped me figure out the best fit schools that I should apply to, as well as a career path that guided me for the remainder of my high school career. If not for him, I do not think I would have had an easygoing time through the process. He was there with answers for all my concerns and worries. I felt that I could reach out to him about anything at any time.“

Garett L., Student

“The process of planning for college is overwhelming by itself. Trying to talk to your kids to motivate them, guide them and keep them to a schedule is a challenge for any parent. We had to do this with twins. Both of them were so different in their personalities as well as so different in their direction, passions, goals and wants. The advice that we could give was only what we had when we were in college and that experience even though valid was outdated. Mr. Simon immediately developed an immediate bond with our boys. His ability to motivate and guide our sons was truly amazing. This relationship and coaching allowed the boys to focus on what they needed to do and a timeframe for each aspect of the experience. The constant feedback on each aspect of the application process made the process smoother not only for the boys but easier for us as parents. His professionalism and knowledge is honed by a passion that warrants respect and motivates one to perform to the best of their ability. I do not know how we could have done this without him.“
