|Student Horizons, Inc. was founded by concerned parents
and admissions professionals looking for new, more effective ways
to connect the right students with the right schools. Relying on the
rankings of commercially-driven lists is not enough for the majority
of college-bound teenagers and their parents. After all, only 3% of
undergraduate students attend large, name-brand schools.|
Increasingly, students and parents examine characteristics such as
average class size, teaching methodology, campus life, innovative
programs like study abroad and service learning, the surrounding community,
etc. in order to select the most appropriate college. Student Horizons,
Inc. feels that the carefully chosen college or university, tailored
to the individual student, makes all the difference in preparing young
people for both collegiate success and success in life.
Student Horizons, Inc. builds and maintains several websites to facilitate
the search process.
Our flagship initiative, Colleges of Distinction (www.collegesofdistinction.com),

2) providing outstanding teaching, 3) offering vibrant communities,
and 4) producing successful outcomes, the pillars of a strong and
active undergraduate education. More.
