Miles & Letha Costin, of the Raleigh based company, are the Regional Directors for American College Planning Foundation in the Piedmont, NC area.

“While most college planners simply try to help parents save more, Miles and I look for ways to make college cost less. One of the cornerstones of our philosophy is making sure that the student is looking at the right colleges for the right reasons.” stated Letha Costin, Vice President of Innovative Advisors, Inc.

Miles Costin, Certified College Planning Specialist (CCPS) and President of Innovative Advisors went on to say, “When it comes to college admissions, our motto is ‘The more you know, the less you pay.’ Students and parents learn how to navigate the college maze and avoid costly mistakes.”
