To create a world where quality education is affordable to all
Let’s be frank – the cost of college is ridiculously high.
Frank has a radical vision and a big goal: to make quality education affordable to all by fundamentally shifting the relationship between students and their finances.
We all grew up hearing the story of the American Dream: one works hard, goes to college, and graduates with a good job and bright future ahead. The only part they left out?
“Well, only if you can afford it.”
That’s where Frank steps in.
Like most Americans, we believe that higher education should empower students, not hinder them.
That’s why every student’s education should be affordable – no matter what language they speak, where they grew up, or how much money their parents make.
Our idea was born when we, like millions of students in the U.S., had to invest in our education. Information, assistance, and money for college were hard to come by. We learned that what should be the proudest moment in a student’s life — graduation day — can come with a heavy price tag.
We set out on a mission to change things, starting with making the federal financial aid process easier. We created an online platform designed to simplify the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), we have eliminated hours of headache and heartache. Over 200,000 have created accounts with us, resulting in over 62,000 FAFSA®s filed — and our numbers grow every day.
“Dream smart” with Frank. We can’t wait to help you.
We’re lucky to work with every single one of our families, students and counselors day in and day out. We don’t take our relationships for granted.
Education is everything to us and doesn’t stop in school. Learn often, everyday. Don’t be afraid to challenge assumptions, try new things and just maybe prove yourself wrong.
We don’t take no for an answer; and you shouldn’t either. Be persistent. If someone slams a door shut, jump through their window.
Do it Simple
Tell it how it is, no sugar added. For a team that has quite a sweet tooth, hold us to it. We’re always honest and as transparent as we can be.
Different makes us better. We’re anchored by our common values of community and equality. We are all in this together. Your dreams are our dreams; your goals, ours.
Provide Exceptional Value
Education is the best investment. We’re here to make it even better. We care about impact and providing more bang for your buck.
As Benjamin Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
We believe education is the most powerful tool in fighting any type of inequality, and for that reason we empower our team members to learn something new every day.
Regardless of when we graduated from high school or college, we treat the world as our classroom. By thinking from a critical standpoint and viewing life through an optimistic lens, we are building a better future, for the future.
