Today’s college arena is highly complex. With a record number of students competing for admissions and severe funding shortages due to economic factors, many families are finding it harder to prepare for college. As a result, 1 in 4 college students fail after just the first year!

This is where the AMEDF comes in. We offer comprehensive workshops and programs geared towards helping students and families in the areas of student academic development, college admissions planning, career exploration, financial aid, and family financial preparation.

Our mission is to ensure college success by providing students and their families quality guidance that is personalized, reliable, objective and affordable in order to make informed decisions about college.

Our vision is that every student successfully enrolls at the college that best provides the knowledge to achieve their career aspirations and graduates in the shortest time possible at a cost the family can afford.
