COLLEGEPREP 101: What to Expect – Parents and Teens Working Together for the Next Step
For parents, guardians and their high school students
Preparing for college will not only help students get into the school of their choice, it can also help them learn the skills to succeed later on in college and the job market. Which tests to take before applying to college, choosing a major or career focus, or learning how to select the correct fit, students have a long and exciting road ahead of them with many options. Francine Block, President of American College Admissions Consultants, will lead this conversation to help you and your family avoid some of these obstacles, make the right decisions and take the steps necessary to succeed.
