Jeannette Webb, Consultant
Jeannette Webb has worked with high school students for over 35 years helping them develop public speaking, leadership, and interview skills, as well as prepare effective applications for scholarship competitions. For the past 13 years, she has specialized in helping families homeschool high school and then apply to the nation’s top colleges. She is perhaps the most experienced and successful homeschool college consultant in the industry.
Jeannette earned a B.S. and M.S. from Oklahoma State University and was that institution’s first Truman Scholar. She spent a decade with the OSU Cooperative Extension Service as 4-H and Youth Development Specialist before she became a home educator in 1993. She homeschooled her own children through high school and the college application process.
In 2005, Jeannette received the Presidential Scholar Distinguished Teacher Award from the U.S. Department of Education. That same year, she founded Aiming Higher Consultants to provide college admissions assistance to students with big dreams.
Natalie Webb is an accomplished musician, was a nationally ranked NCFCA platform speaker, and Co-Founder of The International Debate Society – an online venue for teaching LD debate skills. While in high school, she was a successful fundraiser for the local Pregnancy Care Center and was well known in her community for her leadership activities.
She was accepted into the most prestigious colleges in the country – Princeton, Harvard, Cornell, Penn, Carnegie Mellon, and Rice, as well as highly competitive programs like Penn’s Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology.
Natalie matriculated at Princeton. Even though she was told it was an impossible combination, she applied for and was selected as 1 of 35 freshmen for the Humanities great books sequence, known as the crown jewel of the Princeton experience. She was the only engineer in this grinding four class series.
She was on the leadership team of Princeton Evangelical Fellowship, was a founding member of a baroque chamber group, and loved discussing life’s big questions with friends.
