This free workshop discusses how to best prepare for college. It will discuss the importance of academic preparation, school selection, and finally, how to maximize a family's financial aid award.

Planning Kids College will be holding a free online workshop called “Industry Secrets EVERY Parent Needs To Know About College Planning”. This workshop will reveal what parents can be doing right now to best prepare their high school student for college. They will also learn how to qualify for the most financial aid even if they make to much money.

Julie will be leading this conversation and says this workshop is a chance for people to hear some key industry secrets on how to best prepare their student and wallet for college. College costs regularly run at an 8% inflation rate or more…that means the cost of college DOUBLES every 9 years. Julie will discuss the problems with blindly trusting “the system” to maximize a student’s admission chances and qualifying for the most financial aid.

High school students and their families are trying to understand how the Coronavirus is going to impact the college admissions journey. This is a fluid situation and there is so much that can’t be certain. COVID-19 will definitely have an impact on the admissions process in the years to come. One of the biggest changes is that many colleges have made the move to test optional admissions, meaning students do not need to submit an SAT or ACT score for consideration. This does NOT mean students should forgo these tests. In fact, they are likely still going to hold a lot of weight for scholarships, so students should remain active with their study routine and plan to take them—either again or for the first time as they become available.

Common misunderstandings among the families we work with include the importance of choosing the right school for not only the student but their family’s budget, as well. Choosing between staying in-state for college or finding another state to call home during the college years is a big factor to consider when choosing which colleges to apply to and ultimately attend. Some students jump at the opportunity to go far and live somewhere completely new, while others can’t fathom wanting to leave what’s close and familiar. Interestingly, when it comes to the family’s budget and available financial aid, the least expensive answer isn’t always an in-state school.

This workshop is about PLANNING AHEAD and making educated decisions! There are a lot of high school students out there competing for the same spot, at the same school, for the same financial aid. Workshop attendees will be able to ask questions live and get information not readily available through other channels.
