Preparation is important. After all, every choice a high school student makes, from the classes they take to the activities that fill their summers will impact their college admissions process. Do you know how to guide them through this important journey?
If you are like most parents, you are probably a little overwhelmed by the college planning process. How many APs should my student take? When should they start preparing for standardized tests? How much community service should they have? Stef Mauler, president of The Mauler Institute, and Shane Bybee, president of Bybee College Prep, are joining forces to simplify the college planning process and to answer all of your questions about how you can prepare your child for post-secondary success. “Graduates” of Parent University will leave the session with a strong understanding of:
