Welcome To Step Ahead Idaho

Our Mission

step ahead idaho further educationDetermining the next step after high school is one of the most important decisions a student will make. There is a wealth of opportunities available—college, university, community college, trade school—but navigating the maze of applications, testing, and financial aid can seem overwhelming to both students and parents.

At Step Ahead Idaho, we recognize that no two students are the same, and we provide tailored counseling to meet the needs of each individual client. We provide honest, supportive and experienced perspective to each student's school search.

Our mission is to help each student:

  • discover his or her own interests and strengths to find the "best fit" schools.
  • sort through and organize each step of the planning and application process in a timely manner.
  • put his or her "best foot forward" to maximize acceptance to the school of choice.
