Our College Coach Fall 2021 Live Webinar Series begins with: College Admissions: The Insider’s View

Admissions shouldn’t be a guessing game. What if you could tell exactly what College Admissions decision-makers are looking for? Get the facts from former admissions officers about maximizing your child’s potential for college admissions success, discover the “dos” and “don’ts” of the application process, and learn more about changes resulting from challenges created by COVID-19.

You’ll also learn how to:

  • Plan a high school academic program with college in mind
  • Understand how to remain involved even when high schools are closed
  • Put together a strong college list
  • Create a standout application package

Suggested for parents/guardians of 9th – 12th graders.
