CASE STUDY - "WE ADOPTED MATTHEW OUT OF A TOUGH SITUATION BUT WE DON'T KNOW HOW WE ARE GOING TO AFFORD HIS EDUCATION."

Matthew Martratt

We met Matthew and his legal guardians in 2016. Once we understood Matthew's unique family situation, we were able to guide the family with more affordable and more exciting college options. In addition, Matthew was among our first students to benefit from our newly launched social media training platform (developed with Social Assurity). The success of Matthew's training was featured with several news organizations across the country. Matthew's efforts (and the increasing significance of social media with college admissions) were also featured in an article with the New York Times.

Matthew went on to attend Susquehanna University in the Fall of 2017.
