Who We Are

Tier 1 Recruiting consultants specialize in working with high school student athletes who desire to attend the nation's elite academic colleges and play athletics on that level.


We are much more than athletic consultants or college admission coaches.  We combine both fields to create a unique service that focuses on providing an overview of the college admission and recruiting process  an assessment of your academic and athletic profile, assistance in developing a universe of colleges that best suit you and assistance in securing admission to these programs.
