Lessa Scherrer, Your College Your Way


College Admissions Coach

The philosophy behind Your College Your Way is that the traditional academic path--graduating at 18 to four-years-and-football--does not fit everyone. Your perfect fit college might offer only one class at a time, or accept you after 8th grade, or even be a gap year in Guatemala!

A former homeschool mom herself, Lessa Scherrer has experience helping gifted students, grade-skippers, homeschoolers, and students with learning differences find and apply to their perfect colleges. In addition to working with individual students and families, she has published locally and nationally, and is a regular presenter at the American Mensa national gathering. Her expertise in uncommon colleges for unique students will help you find your perfect college, whenever you are ready to go.

You have so many options. Let's find your college, your way.
