Welcome to Parros College Planning

A division of Parros Financial Group

As financial advisors, college planners and parents, we know what you are going through. We are not a scholarship search firm and we're not a student loan lender. We are well-versed in the financial aid process, but we know not everyone is eligible for financial aid. So we take a broader approach-identifying a variety of solutions that will make college more affordable for people at all income and asset levels.

College admissions has become one of the most emotional and competitive events in your child's life. In addition, today's high cost of a college education ranks as one of the largest expenditures you'll ever make in your lifetime. Many families we meet tell us the only way to pay for their child's college education is:

  • Deplete my savings and investments
  • Incur large amounts of high-cost education debt
  • Stop funding my retirement
  • Borrow against my retirement funds
  • Dramatically change my current financial lifestyle
