College Bootcamp for Parents (and grandparents) is Back!

We worry about getting students ready for college. But we neglect to prepare key partners in their success, i.e. their parents and grandparents. Student success is a family project.  Families nurture, encourage, guide and provide to get students in the family to college. The more knowledge that adults in the family have about college and the college process, the more effective their efforts will be.

College has changed since parents and grandparents attended.  Admission is more competitive. Admission selection criteria have evolved. College costs have increased faster than inflation.  And financial aid has not kept pace with college costs.

Each individual student will do best at a college that is suited to his needs with regard to programs offered, size of the college, academic rigor, cost, student culture, distance from home, living accommodations, services provided and opportunities. Parents and grandparents are the best judge of student needs and in the best position to influence the best college decisions.

Current rising high school seniors need family support as they face critical college and college major decisions between now and October.  And riding close behind those decisions are admission, scholarship and financial aid tasks with firm deadlines.

Parents and grandparents of students in any year of high school are invited to a one-hour seminar on what families of high school students should know about college on Monday, July 11, 2011 at the Herron Payne Meeting Center in Williamsburg at 6:30 pm.

Register for this free one hour seminar online or call Pam Rambo at 757-253-2595.  The web address for online registration is www.ramboresearchandconsulting.com.  Space is limited.
