College Bound Parenting is a college preparatory social networking platform that provides parents with effective planning strategies to prepare their children for securing scholarships and college admissions.
Our mission is to reduce the college graduation gap between underrepresented minorities and white students and create a college–success culture for the families we serve, - which we affectionately call, "The Village".
Because it Takes a Village
College Bound Parenting (CBP) is more than a college preparatory company, we are a village of parents sharing our journey as we guide our children to a debt-free college education. We are led by team of college planning experts who have over 150 years of combined experience working with students and families in the college admission and scholarship processes.
