Navigating the Covid-19 College Conundrum

We are all on an adventure of the 100-year event type. That does not mean we have to be at a stand-still in our lives. Think of it as a pause during which those of us sheltering in place can take full advantage of something we have complained that we never have enough of.....TIME.

High school sophomores can take some of this time to start thinking what they are most gifted at and researching careers that require those gifts. High school juniors can use this time to maximize their scores on the upcoming at home AP tests. Juniors can also get a leg up on college and major research and writing essays. High school seniors-can pay close attention to changing deadlines and instructions from their colleges and be prepared for new deadlines and instructions on how the fall will unfold for them.

The best advice for every student is to be flexible, use this time to get ready for opportunities that will present themselves and stay connected virtually to extended family, friends, teachers and future colleges. It may not seem like it now, but the best is yet to come and humanity is counting on you to help guide us all into the future.
