With College Directions Hawaii, students find the individualized support they need to get ready for, apply to and succeed in college and other post-secondary pursuits. Our personalized attention helps guide them in every step of the process.

Before going into Lorraine’s class, I had no idea about how I would write my personal statement. After two short lessons, my ideas were organized and I felt confident writing about personal experiences. As the first person to attend college in my family, I did not know where to get help for college. But after attending Lorraine’s workshop, I know I have someone to help me. Lorraine doesn’t just help students with their personal essays, she also guides them in anything college or scholarship related. Her class is fantastic and I recommend it to every student on the island.

Lorraine at College Directions Hawaii made an intimidating mission into a successful and workable journey. Her knowledge of all the ins and outs of getting a child to college were phenomenal. Her enthusiasm, commitment and constant communication with me and my daughter during the entire process was outstanding. I could not ask for a better experience. For all the parents out there that have children getting ready to go to college, you need to work with Lorraine right away. She is awesome and passionate about helping parents with all aspects of the college application process. You will not regret it.
