About the event

Applying to college has changed significantly over the past 20 years and if you feel overwhelmed by the college application process and the numerous decisions that need to be made, you are not alone. According to a recent study, more than half of high school students say that applying to college was their most stressful academic experience to date.

This session is designed to provide parents of high school students with valuable insights and practical strategies to navigate the modern world of college admissions and financial aid. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge and tools necessary to support you and your child in making confident decisions about their higher education journey.

What we will cover

  • How does the application process at colleges work, and how do colleges decide who is admitted and who isn't?
  • What should families be doing each year during high school to be better prepared to succeed in college?
  • How can families financially prepare for college?
  • How important is the ACT and SAT, and what does it mean when a college is "test-optional?”
  • And most importantly, how to help your child have a healthy mindset throughout the process.
