The truth is that no college ranking can tell you that a school is right or wrong for your child.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
After months of research on the top liberal arts colleges in the U.S., the new website LiberalArtsColleges.com is now live. The site is a comprehensive guide for students and parents looking to better understand their options for a liberal arts education.
"When a student and their parents are looking at colleges, they are also embarking on one of the largest investments they will make in their lifetimes," says David Donohue, publisher of LiberalArtsColleges.com. "This process should be well thought out and include discussions of the student's goals for their education as well as a frank talk about family finances."
In addition to dozens of helpful articles on selecting a school, paying for college, the application process and college test preparation, the site profiles the top liberal arts colleges. Students can search for schools by region, student population, selectivity or cost of a college.
"With all the buzz about the annual U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings, some families lose track of the real value of higher education," reports Donohue. "The truth is that no college ranking can tell you that a school is right or wrong for your child. There is much more to that choice than looking at a ranking spreadsheet."
The most interesting and unique feature about the site is probably the in depth liberal arts college profiles and the filter features that enable families to search for schools in the way that best fits their needs.
The new website, LiberalArtsColleges.com, provides more than statistics and private college listings. The site offers current information and valuable links to resources that will help students not only choose the best colleges to meet their goals, but also to prepare for the college application process. This improves their chances of being accepted into the college of their choice. Students can learn more by visiting http://www.liberalartscolleges.com
