College Planning: Finding Colleges That Fit and
How to Afford Them

Are you concerned about your child’s path to college? Do the application requirements and deadlines seem confusing? Is it hard to imagine how you can afford to pay for one (or more) college educations? If you are a parent with a middle or high school student, this class will help you and your student prepare for college. We’ll discuss how to search for colleges that fit, understand what admission committees are looking for, write that dreaded essay and create an excellent resume.

Even if your child gets in to the college of their choice, paying for college is the one of the largest expenditures most parents will face in their lifetimes. In this class we will discuss strategies that can help you reduce college costs through planning, various savings methods, and tax strategies. We will also discuss how you can maximize potential financial aid with some advanced planning.

This class will help you get through the selection and application process, and avoid many of the common mistakes that can cost your family hard-earned money.

High school students are encouraged to attend Session 1 with their parent(s) at no extra cost.
