conduct a smarter college search

Workshop

for high school students & their parent(s)

Accessible, affordable, and just a few hours of your time.

Kick-off your college search with our interactive workshop for high school juniors, sophomores, freshman and their parent(s) so you can find the college experience that works best for your family. We break down this complex process into smaller segments, exploring each topic with a mix of mini-lectures and exercises designed to be fun and informative. We go behind the scenes of a college's search to build a class and explore how a family's college search should mirror this process.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • revealing parents’ vs. student’s expectations for the college experience';

  • learning how to see through the marketing to find the information you need;

  • gauging a school's competitiveness and your chances for acceptance;

  • considering your academic major and how it impacts the admissions process;

  • reviewing the additional steps taken by athletes and/or those in the performing/visual arts;

  • strategies for connecting with colleges to demonstrate interest;

  • planning college visits;

  • applying for admission and financial aid;

  • negotiating for merit aid/scholarships;

  • and more.

 

Families will leave the workshop ready to tackle the search with a list of milestones and targeted completion dates to keep themselves on track from that day until matriculation.

All participants in our introductory workshop have access to our Ask An Expert program. Ask An Expert is our promise to respond within one business day to any questions you ask (via email or phone) throughout your college search.
