Description


Join us for 20 Tips to College Planning Success at York Community High School on Oct 29th 7pm. This 60-minute workshop will empower you to take control of the college admissions process. You will learn about best practices, key deadlines and how to help your child succeed.

Topics Include:

How To Get In

First, we explain how to determine the right path for each student and how to maximize their potential of getting into their preferred school. We discuss how to create a strong college list, and we give insight into the essays and other admissions requirements.

How To Pay For It

We help you understand the landscape of college payment options such as financial aid, loans and savings. You will learn how to minimize your potential out-of-pocket costs and how to navigate merit- vs. need-based aid. We review EFC and FAFSA, and how to evaluate financial aid award packages (which can be tricky).

Career Success

First, we review how to make a successful transition to college and offer tips to help prepare. Next, we go over strategies for building a solid resume and landing good internships throughout college. Last, we discuss career planning, choosing the right major and what to look for in a school.
