is a public service of the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) that serves as a one-stop career and college planning website. EducationPlanner provides practical and easy-to-understand advice to help prepare middle and high school students for the important decisions they will face in the future, such as applying to college, paying for college, and career planning. Interactive self-assessments are available to help students discover their strengths and weaknesses, and they can also ask a guidance counselor questions about higher education, financial aid, and careers.

In addition to being a resource for students, EducationPlanner also provides information and tools for parents and guidance counselors to help students prepare for college. Parents will learn how to teach their child about money management, saving for college, finding scholarships, the FAFSA process, and understanding ACT and SAT scores. Counselors can learn how to set up a job shadowing program and host a student aid event.

So the next time you have patrons who have questions about college, be sure to let them know that help is freely available at
