Parent and Grandparent Support in the College Process

Keeping Track of Data Critical to College Success

Your kid has taken his SAT and/or ACT and applied to colleges and it is not even thanksgiving and you are feeling awesome. Make sure that as the smoke settles from all that activity that you help the high school senior in your house gather up ALL the info and put it in ONE PLACE!
Students frequently forget what colleges they sent their four free SAT score reports to, for example. To find out, so that they can make sure score reports get everywhere they are supposed to, students need to keep track of userid's and passwords for College Board and ACT.

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.
