If you have a high school student who will be graduating in 2024, 2025, or 2026, then you need to talk to Workspace Member, Ernest Minelli. As the founder of MAP for College, Mr. Minelli has proudly served students and families as a dedicated advocate for 27 years!

Since 1995, the MAP for College program has helped students and families ensure that the college preparation process will be more manageable, more meaningful, and more enjoyable. By providing informative research, facilitating meaningful discussions, and offering specific guidance to students, MAP for College allows them to find their own unique “voice” to be expressed and validated. As the parent of a High School sophomore, this makes the college search and application process sound much less daunting.

If you are fortunate to have a conversation with Ernest, you will find that he is one of the nicest gentlemen you will ever meet and that his passion for empowering students is palpable. He has helped countless college-bound teens, and their parents, navigate the often difficult transition from High School to college.
