We love to share our knowledge with groups to help them not "feel alone" in this overwhelming process. During our presentations we provide valuable information to help you no matter where you are in the process of college planning. We have presented to elementary schools, middle schools and high schools, as well as to church groups and businesses. We have hosted groups as small as three families and shared with groups of over 100. If you have a group interested in meeting with us to alleviate some stress or simply to find some peace of mind on how to get started, please give us a call and we would be happy to set up a presentation for your group.
College Preparation Courses:
When should you start planning for college? Colleges start taking into consideration grades, volunteer hours and testing once you start high school. So, you should start planning when everything starts “counting”. Our college prep courses have been created specifically for freshman and sophomores to help design a plan, and gain an understanding of what colleges require for admission. Learn how to build an educational foundation and reduce the overwhelming feeling of not knowing where to start. The program is a total of 10 hours. The cost is $499.00 per student. The courses take place at our office, and can be arranged to be taught off site for your group or school. (Please call to make arrangements)
We would like to invite you in for a one-on-one consultation. These one hour meetings allow you to ask any questions you have regarding your financial and academic planning for college or the work force. We encourage you to bring a list of questions and any paperwork that may aid us in this process. Questions from "How do we start saving?", to "What classes should I be taking?", to "What is this award letter really offering?" are all excellent questions. If you have an educational savings plan, is it the right vehicle? If your student is taking dual enrollment classes will they transfer to another college? What is FAFSA? It is never too early to start planning. (Hourly meeting rate: $65)
Allow us be your college planning team! This personal coaching program, utilizes every resource we have to ensure an optimal outcome for both student and parents. Our process is focused on integrating a student’s interests, abilities and values, to identify their probable career path. We then help determine which majors support that career path and find the schools which will provide the necessary education, while meeting the family’s education budget. (please call for details)
