College Planning 101
Designed for both students and parents, this session will help you develop a plan for a successful college search process. Topics to be covered include: how to get started, understanding the various higher education options, strategies for narrowing choices, tips for campus visits, and how to acquire the most accurate and useful information about colleges. Most importantly, the session will provide key recommendations to assist you in finding the best college fit. A panel of high school and college experts will share their expertise and answer your questions.

Financial Aid and Scholarships 101
This session will take a common sense, easy to understand look at college financial aid and scholarships. This will include: providing a clear overview of the application and eligibility process, the types of aid students may receive, understanding award notices, and options for covering any remaining balance after grants and scholarships. We’ll concentrate on eliminating the jargon that can confuse the process, and focus on common sense goals like finishing in 4 years, and understanding student loans by looking at how the borrowing process works. We’ll also take a moment to discuss the impact of a pandemic on families and financial aid eligibility. The ultimate goal is to eliminate the apprehension and fear often associated with the financial aid process.

Highly Selective Admissions
Admission to a highly selective institution requires more than a stellar GPA or high test score. Hear from experts on both the college and high school sides as they share “insider’s tips” on the selective admissions process, holistic review, preparing your application, and COVID-19’s impact on applying test-optional and selective admissions rates.

Career Awareness for High School Students
Wondering what career is right for you, where to find information, or how to gain career experience in high school? Join us for an informative session led by industry and career counseling experts who will provide specific steps and resources to help high school students increase their self-awareness, explore careers and even gain career experience before graduation.
