Hi, My name is Mike Davila.

 I am the founder and one of the partners at College Inroads. I would say that one of the biggest concerns that families have when they come to us is that they’re having a hard time finding the right fit college for their students.

And that’s understandable, considering that there are 2400 4-year colleges out there, and let’s face it, everybody’s really strapped for both time and resources these days. So one of the things that we do here at College and Roads is look at everything through the lens of College Affordability, and we help students narrow that bigger list down to a much more manageable list for them to consider and apply to.

One of the other things that we always have believed is that
there is a college out there for everybody.

One of our biggest success stories isn’t necessarily a student getting into the Ivy League or the upper tier one schools, even though we do have students that attend those institutions. This one student I’m thinking about actually was 480th out of his class of 500 students.

So we’re not talking to the most stellar student here, but he got accepted into six out of eight colleges that he applied to and even got a $20,000 scholarship for the one that he ended up attending.

So if you’re ready to get started, if you’re ready to find the Right Fit college for you, just please contact us and consider setting up an appointment with us. Thanks so much.

The team at College Inroads has made the college search and application process as easy and low-stress as possible for our oldest son (now heading off to college in the Fall). We've found so much value in the College Inroads team and process that our second child has enrolled and is well on his way!

College Inroads helped us clearly understand the requirements, steps and key dates for the college application process. They then worked with my daughter to stay on track and coached her through the steps. She was accepted at all the schools she applied! I would highly recommend them!

I found this excellent organization during the height of the pandemic when I realized that, as a healthcare worker, there was no way I was going to be able to navigate the college admissions process on my own. They have been so good that my second child used them as well. Both of them got into their favorite schools. College Inroads helps out at every step of the way, from choosing majors and matching which colleges would be the best fit for them as individuals, through navigating the FAFSA process, all the way to keeping deadlines for essays and applications. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I just signed up my third child who just entered high school!

Our son felt like he was ahead of the game with College Inroads. He felt like it kept him on pace with checking off the list of things to do before college. It was so nice to not have to nag him to get his essays done or request referral letters from his teachers. We are glad we started the process Junior year. He never felt rushed and they helped guide him the entire way until even after he was accepted to his school of choice!

College Inroads was absolutely amazing! The communication with us and my son was wonderful! They stayed on top of application process, essay guidance, deadlines, and answering any questions we had!! We were extremely happy with the whole process and will be referring them to friends and using them again!

One of the best decisions we made. Our daughter will graduate from LTHS class of 2023 in the Top 10 out of approx. 1,000 students. She will be playing collegiate soccer while studying pre-med. Our household is busy! Times have changed since we went to school. (A TON OF CHANGES) Little background: My husband and I are self-employed. Our daughter not only excelled academically she also thrived being an athlete. She played varsity soccer & Club Soccer @ the ENCL level all 4 years. 2 of the 4 years Pole Vaulting (District JV champion both years) Her heart is in service and volunteered close to 400 hours and had a job mentoring other athletes with P2P in addition she kept a good social life. (our plates were full and when you think of being full we really could not add another thing to our plate) Working with College Inroads made our already crazy lifestyle easy. We started in the 9th grade and worked on the program. In business and life, surprises are only good if they are (money, vacation and jewelry) What College Inroads did was prepare our daughter and us so we had no surprises. Senior year can be stressful but having this team in our corner made it easy. (Even calling us when we got off track to make sure we achieved our goals) No drama - No headaches - All the resources you need. Hats off to this team! Thanks again for making the process simple. Personally when other parents ask me questions all I ever say is call,“College Inroads" they know the answers and took great care of us. It is worth your time to see what they have to offer. If I did not show up at the Event College Inroads hosted - I personally believe we would have struggled with all our commitments. I do not know if we would had done the proper research needed to support our daughter's future. I will be very real, we would have pulled our hair out fighting with a teen who knows it all :) We have a great daughter who is very respectful. Remember, she still is a teenager and teenagers from time to time think they know more than we do. She loved working with, "College Inroads" and they knew everything in her opinion. I have to agree with her. Thanks again Your biggest Fans

With the help and support of College Inroads, my high school senior went from ambivalent about college to getting accepted into a fashion program at a 4 year university and feeling excited to start the next chapter in their life! This service gave my child guidance and counseling to help them find their passion, narrow down the search for school, complete the applications and get accepted into their top choice!
College In Roads is fabulous. So helpful for my son , and myself as well :) Highly recommend.

Annmarie is located in austin tx but has been an incredible resource to my friends and family with high school seniors in Ohio and in San Antonio. She makes finding the perfect college so smooth. She is extremely knowledgeable with paperwork. She has saved the relationships between teen and mom by being the “naggers” of paperwork leaving room for mom and kids to savor those last few months together!
