The College T | History

During COVID-19, Aly Beaumont, a Fairfield County private college counselor from Admissions Village¬†and Amanda Duffy, a recent UVM grad (’20), realized that it was going to be harder than ever for high school students to visit schools and learn about them. Aly and Amanda began compiling a list of CT college students and graduates who would be interested in having candid, “off the record” conversations about their schools with high schoolers.

George Copley, co-founder of StyleSite, was one of those students and saw an opportunity to create a unique online platform for high schoolers all over America to use. He and his partner, James Ward, designed The College T platform and teamed up with Aly to grow the business.

Additionally, Niamh Mc Carthy, Wilton High School grad (’20), and Joanna Holland, CT-based PR consultant, joined the team to help build the marketing, PR and recruitment functions for The College T.

The College T has started off with a small team and a few hundred College T ambassadors willing to speak to high school students, but we aim to have representatives for every college in the US and, eventually, abroad!
