Join us on Wednesday, April 1st from 7-8pm at York High School for the 20 Tips to College Planning Success Workshop.  This 60-minute workshop will empower you to take control of the college admissions process. You will learn about best practices, key deadlines and how to help your child succeed. 

Topics Include: 

 

College Admissions:

First, we explain how to determine the right path for each student and how to maximize their potential of getting into their preferred school. We discuss how to create a strong college list, and we give insight into the essays and other admissions requirements.

 

Paying For College:

We help you understand the landscape of college payment options such as financial aid, loans and savings. You will learn how to minimize your potential out-of-pocket costs and how to navigate merit- vs. need-based aid. We review EFC and FAFSA, and how to evaluate financial aid award packages (which can be tricky). 

 

Career Success:

First, we review how to make a successful transition to college and offer tips to help prepare. Next, we go over strategies for building a solid resume and landing good internships throughout college. Last, we discuss career planning, choosing the right major and what to look for in a school.
