About Us

Our Premier Focus

The ACF, headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, serves as your college preparation cornerstone with all information and related strategies delivered entirely from the family’s perspective.

Through the ACF, families also have the opportunity to explore further, even more detailed, college planning solutions from leading companies, receive college planning-related email updates directly from the ACF, and keep apprised of the latest developments regarding college financing and admission details.

Our ACF website has been designed specifically as a reference tool for high school students and their families detailing the vital procedures that are critical to the overall college planning process.

The College Planning Process

The process seems endless: careers, majors, degree options, colleges, scholarships, grants, funding, fellowships, tuition discounts, and federal loan programs; not to mention navigating the vital steps along the way, meeting all required college admission application and financial aid deadlines, and, most importantly, evaluating the awarded funding.

Tuition and related college expenses all continue to skyrocket; however, there is hope.  Actually a great deal of hope … with a good overall understanding of the process and a workable plan, you can be successful.

To round out their academic and social environment, colleges look for a wide range of active participants who challenge themselves and demonstrate a very strong desire to succeed.

For students, effective high school preparation is the key; and, for parents an overall understanding of the process is vital.

ACF Visionary Scholarship

Our Visionary Scholarship is a bi-annual award.  There are five (5) awards given with each bi-annual deadline – with a total of ten (10) college scholarships awarded for each school year.  Awards range from $1,000 to $2,500 each.  High school Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors who are US citizens or eligible non-citizens are invited to apply.
