College Planning 101

It is never too early to begin planning for your child’s college education. Taught by nationally-recognized college planning expert Randall Bedwell, College Planning 101 demystifies the college planning process, providing you with the resources and answers you need to execute a plan for college that meets your child’s academic, social, and financial needs.

 

College Path Boot Camp

College Path Boot Camp helps rising high school seniors understand and complete The Common Application and the Admission Essay. During this half-day workshop, College Planner Randall Bedwell helps students develop an effective application strategy, review admissions chances at targeted colleges, and get started on the most difficult parts of the application process.

Great Colleges Require Great Essays

This two-hour interactive workshop, taught by Certified College Planner and college professor Randall Bedwell, is designed to help rising high school seniors construct a college application essay that wows college admissions officers and gets the student accepted into the right college for them.

This includes a preview of The Common Application prompts, advice from top Admissions Officers from around the country, and a rough draft of their essay.

 

 

Scholarship Strategies

Scholarships and grants can significantly offset the cost of college, regardless of a family’s net worth. This one-hour class helps families understand strategies, sources of scholarship money, and the commitment necessary to secure scholarship money and reduce the out-of-pocket cost of college.

Don’t Fear the FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, better known as FAFSA, is required to qualify for any government assistance programs, private scholarships, or work-study opportunities. This two-hour class gets you familiar with the dreaded “F-word”— the FAFSA. This class will help you understand how the FAFSA works, how to use it to reduce your family’s out-of-pocket costs, and how to master strategies to pay less than the “sticker price” for a good college.

Opportunities for Exceptional Students

Every child has a talent worth developing, but many parents are not sure how to best shape their child’s educational trajectory to develop this talent. This one-hour informational workshop provides parents of “intellectually curious” students — particularly exceptional and gifted learners — vital information to explore opportunities such as Vanderbilt’s Summer Academy, Duke’s TIP program, and a variety of other opportunities for gifted learners. Other topics include college planning, testing, and tips for channeling your child’s CQ (Curious Quotient).
