A Learn-at-Lunch Series

Wednesday, March 19, 2008, Noon – 1 p.m.

As teens approach the milestone of moving on to college, working parents are faced with the task of assisting them through this exciting, complex and time consuming period. This program is designed to help working parents take proactive steps to minimize stress and maximize success.

Most students and parents wait until the end of the junior year of high school to prepare for the college application process. There is a big advantage to planning early, the payoff being considerably less stress and a greater window to build a successful student portfolio. Given the large numbers of high school students applying to college, the process is becoming increasingly competitive. This presentation will focus on steps you and your student can take in preparation. Find out what colleges are looking for in an applicant and the activities that will enhance your student’s high school portfolio.
