Since 2004, Katherine O'Brien, founder of Celtic College Consultants, has empowered teens for their futures. She helps them develop their skills and talents and build authentic confidence. She guides them to create a plan to achieve their goals and accompanies the college bound teens through the college prep, selection, funding, and application process. In addition to being accepted at top tier colleges, art schools, engineering schools, and public honors colleges, year after year her clients have been offered over $225,000 each, on average, in scholarships. Her clients hit the ground running when they get on campus, since they know what they want, how to advocate for themselves, and have abundant funding. Additionally, Ms. O'Brien guides her client families to maximize their need based aid and scholarships so the family's net cost is the least possible.
