Peterson’s, with more than 40 years of expertise in college planning and test preparation services, announced today that it has launched the consumer version of its premier college planning resource center called StudentEdge. When high school students begin to ask college planning questions, Peterson’s StudentEdge is available to them 24/7 with all the answers. StudentEdge is an affordable and personalized online resource that combines test preparation, college planning, financial aid tools, and career exploration to help students and families plan for life after high school.
“With StudentEdge, affordable and comprehensive college preparation tools are finally available to all families,” said Michael Fleischner, Managing Director at Peterson’s. “There is no need to pay thousands or even hundreds of dollars for expensive test prep classes and admission consultants.”
StudentEdge empowers students to take charge of their future by combining test preparation for college entrance exams, advanced school search and selection tools, scholarship search engines, career exploration, and much more in one convenient location.
StudentEdge Basic includes full-length practice tests for the SAT*, ACT®, PSAT*, AP* exams and much more, while StudentEdge Plus and Premium also offer complete online courses for major college admission tests, in addition to a variety of college search and selection tools. Students and families can also search tuition information and browse an $8 billion dollar scholarship database, analyze financial aid awards and estimate how much they need to save for college.
For students who are seeking career information, StudentEdge offers tools to help them see and find the path that best suits their personality type while also providing assistance to build their resume for college admission, a summer internship or that all-important first job.
StudentEdge has been recently awarded the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) Seal of Approval which identifies StudentEdge as a quality product for college and career planning.
