“College Bound Essentials” 3-Hour Private College Prep Session or Workshop
Families can either choose to enjoy a one-time “College Bound Essentiials” consultation, lasting 2-3 hours or, if they seek more guidance, to engage in an ongoing level of support through a “concierge” package. All sessions will be held at the Scholarship Gold office in Lake Wylie, SC (south of Charlotte, easily accessible from I-85 and I-77) The one-time session is economically priced to keep this essential information affordable and accessible to as many families as possible.
Workshop option– The same content covered in this meeting is accessible throughout the year in the small College Bound Essentials workshops. Students receive the same resources and handouts and we cover much of the same material. The difference between the workshop and private session is simply that the session is not quite as customized. However, it is more economical (only $75 per student, parents come along for free). Email Elizabeth Hartley to discuss having a workshop offered at your school or organization. She’ll bring all the material and resources and present it in your space.
Not from NC or SC? Clients who live too far for a meeting in-person can enjoy the same session through a pre-scheduled conference call. You will receive your resources in advance, followed by the same personal and customized session you would enjoy sitting in the Scholarship Gold office.
