Hello Fellow Villagers!

I'm Lili St. Christopher, the founder of the College Bound Village LLC, and I am on a mission to empower 100,000 parents and scholars with scholarships and college resources.

My Intention:

I bring together goal-oriented parents of college-bound scholars to teach them proven scholarship strategies so that we can break generational curses, live abundantly, retire with ease, travel the world, and manifest God's glory as debt-free empty nesters.

Why Offer an Annual CBV Academy Membership?

CBV Core Values


Since July 2022, CBV has offered monthly access passes to our CBV Academy webinars, Study Halls, Genius Hours, and $Scholarships Saturday sessions.

In January 2023, we launched our CBV Academy Gold Annual Membership with a cohort of 12 families from various U.S. locations, including California, Illinois, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, and Washington D.C.

In February 2023, we launched our CBV Academy Silver Annual Membership with three additional families from North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.

πŸ“š In June 2023, we welcomed five families in our June 2023 CBV Academy SunflowerA Annual Membership cohort from Missouri, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Our three primary goals are to:

  • Empower parents and students who are stressed out and overwhelmed by the college admissions and scholarship process.

  • Implement a more strategic approach to empowering families who are mentally and physically exhausted.

  •  Plan, grow, scale, and provide more impactful and transformative solutions with a consistent customer base throughout the year. 

Meet My Family!

Lorne Sr., Lorne II and Laila (holding the check)

In 2019, my son, Lorne II, earned over $500,000 in merit-based Scholarships, which prompted me to start the College Bound Village Facebook page and share information with my friends & family.

Lorne recently completed his 4th year in college majoring in Mechanical Engineering. He is in the Air Force ROTC and currently interns at Boeing.

My daughter, Laila, is a class of 2023 high school graduate and earned more than $1 million in merit-based Scholarships.



She plans to attend the University of California - San Diego in the Fall 2023, majoring in Pharmaceutical Science.

We have recently welcomed 5,000+ members to our free private CBV Facebook group.

In 2020, I started the College Bound Village LLC and since that time, I've helped hundreds of families find and apply for thousands of dollars in scholarships and money for college.
