Welcome to American School Search!

American School SearchAmerican School Search is a comprehensive online resource designed specifically for prospective college students and their parents. We list more than 7,000 colleges and universities across the United States and make it a goal to provide our visitors with unbiased, accurate, and up-to-date information for each school.

Every person uses a different set of criteria when selecting a college. Whether it's the quality of academic programs, the tuition costs and availability of loans, or the relative safety of a college campus - we have created unique methods for you to discover a college in a way that makes sense for you as an individual.

We currently evaluate the colleges listed on our website using a standardized system of measurement that can contain up to 92 unique factors and criteria about each specific school. These have been collected from public data sources released by the US Department of Education in 2016 - 2017.

By using and evaluating these data sets, we are able to present our visitors with objective information to assist them in making a more informed decision about which college to attend.

College enrollment can be a very rewarding experience, but with so many different options, the process can also be confusing and overwhelming at times. At American School Search, we have attempted to simplify the college seeking process for you as much as possible while still providing in-depth information about each specific school.

We have also provided contact information for all schools that we currently list. Once you find a school or group of schools that meet your qualifications, we encourage you to take the next step and contact the school directly by calling or visiting their campus.

You can be sure that through every step of your college search, American School Search is here to help.
