About Us

"We want to help your child experience the benefits of a college education without feeling the pain of student loan debt." ~ Ronny Washington, Founder and CEO

Our Team
Our team consists of highly qualified and experienced education professionals from school districts, colleges, universities and organizations around the nation. Our consultants are passionate about helping students successfully complete college and transition into the workforce in great financial condition.

Throughout our years of working in high schools and on college campuses, we saw students and their parents making costly mistakes that could have been avoided if they had the proper guidance, information and understanding of how the college system works.


Additionally, many students and parents were not getting the high level of service and individual attention they deserve due to the limited staffing and resources of the high schools. 


Higher Ed Path was created to provide families with affordable access to a team of experts to guide them through the college planning, financial aid and scholarship process.

Our mission is to help individuals boost their economic empowerment, financial literacy and intellectual capital using education as a vehicle.
