Advancing Excellence in Higher Education Consulting

HECA Educational Consultants Can Help

As the only network of independent educational consultants focused exclusively on supporting high school students in their search for the right fit college, HECA members create greater access to opportunity and change lives.

HECA members spend hours researching and visiting
campuses and welcome
college representatives into our communities. We know
when colleges and consultants collaborate, students benefit.

Big decisions. Confusing choices.
Finding the right fit college (and understanding affordability) can be an enormous challenge for students and families—and our experienced, ethical, and engaged consultants are here to help.

Businesses and organizations supporting an open, ethical
college search process can
raise awareness and reach
out to students, families, and consultants as a HECA affiliate
or event sponsor.


Join the international IEC network that provides the personal support, professional resources, and educational programs that position you to do your very best work with students. From our collegial listserv to our annual conference to college tours, the benefits of membership are many—and growing every day.
