MEET THE ADVISORS
We met over 35 years ago at the University of Massachusetts as undergraduate students and kept in touch over the years as we pursued individual careers in higher education. During this past decade we combined our expertise and knowledge to develop a college advising program we believe will help our clients manage the best possible outcomes for their college admissions. We are so excited to work with you and your family to make this process, which at times can seem quite overwhelming, one that is simple, easy and exciting and successful! We look forward to meeting you soon!

You've been an invaluable resource and I can't thank you enough for all the help you provided me when applying to Harvard. You're a big part of why I'm here and I couldn't have done it without your guidance.
University of Michigan, Class of 2017
We could not have gotten through this process and to this point without Renée Serrano and College Quest Advising. At first, the whole undertaking seemed so overwhelming and daunting...
