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.
