College Compass

Raising your children is a daunting task.  It is equally as daunting and stressful during your child’s high school years when you are preparing and organizing them to begin the college entrance process. With assistance of this website I will help you overcome your fears and gain new insightful knowledge of “Navigating the Maze” of the college preparation process.

Taking this process one step at a time is the key to success. As I always say “It’s easy by the inch, but mighty hard by the yard.” It is overwhelming and stressful but with proper knowledge and attitude, it can become a bonding experience for both you and your child. Be sure to enjoy the journey!

My name is Debby Rice and my husband and I home schooled our three children through high school.  All three have graduated from college ( 2 from Texas A & M and 1 from Texas Tech).  Two have completed Masters programs and the third is currently 1/2 through his program. All three have been successful in their individual careers.

Home schooling has been a challenge but the rewards were exceptional.  One of those rewards was the knowledge I acquired during the application and scholarship process.  Because of our hard work and efforts our children received over $100,000 in scholarships and grants.  It was truly a blessing! We would not have been able to afford college without the assistance. Until last year, not one of our family  members had to take out any loans for their undergraduate college education.

I try to be exceptionally organized. Due to this fact and the knowledge I gained from the college entrance process I have developed a four-week workshop (whether you home school or not) that answers almost every question you can think of when it comes to college or the scholarship process.  I have complied a file folder system which will keep you organized. Please feel free to utilize whatever information on this website that will assist you.

If you would like to schedule me for a speaking engagement, fill out the survey and I will contact you.
