College Planning Extravaganza – Part 1 of 2 – Ready4College Workshops
October 30, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDTFree
We will answer parents’ biggest questions about college during a 2-night college planning extravaganza!
Preparing for college is not the same as it was for us. You have so many unanswered questions…so much you don’t know. You need accurate information from a trusted resource. We have solutions!
This is perfect for families ideally with 8th to 11th-grade students but of course families with seniors can attend too! We encourage parents and students to attend together.
We’ll discuss a wide range of topics for students and parents to consider on this journey to college and beyond.
SAT/ACT prep, high school courses to take, essay writing, the application process and what colleges look for in applicants, choosing a major, what students and families can be doing now to prepare, FAFSA prep, understanding your EFC, financial aid, a plan for how to pay for all four years, and more!
