College Bound Essentials
Just as the name implies, this workshop is an essential session for any college-bound student who wants to get their best admission opportunities and secure the highest scholarship offers possible. Parents are welcome to come along at no extra charge.
Students attending this session will receive a comprehensive, hardcover College Success Workbook to guide them through all aspects of college preparation.
Where? This session will take place at Lake Wylie Christian Assembly, in the Youth Bldg in back (pictured below) Students will be seated up front, at tables, with me. Parents will be around sides and back. Having the students up front equips them with more engagement and ownership of what lies ahead!
Who should come? 8th-11th graders will absolutely benefit from this workshop. This information is most helpful when students and parents can learn it sooner than later so that they have more time to act on it before the senior year. There is a separate set of workshops for seniors.
What will we learn? This class will give students and parents valuable information on how to make the decisions throughout high school that will result in maximum admission offers and scholarship money. (Mrs. Hartley’s own children have ended up with extremely affordable educations at Dartmouth, Duke, Yale, Michigan State, and Honors College of Charleston.)
Specifically, the class will:
- Teach students how to get full ride offers to over 200 schools with just one test
- How to build a transcript that will result in the best admission offers
- How to go to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Brown, MIT and more for FREE (really)
- Teach them how to find their best college fits- public vs private, faith-based vs secular, etc.
- Cover basic interview skills
- Teach students how to tour and evaluate a college as it relates to the student’s interests
- Identify the best and least expensive ways to increase SAT and ACT scores
- Encourage them to take “ownership” of this next stage in their lives, to be proactive, organized and serious about this decision and help them strategize a game plan to get their best results!
The price of $95 applies to each student attending but parents are encouraged to attend at no extra charge. When registering, only enroll the student, not the parent. (But do input the parent’s email address.) Extra students can be registered at the same time for the same price by listing them as Guests.
