Parents: Start Talking College Early!

Parents: Start Talking College Early!

posted in: Parent Corner | 0

Students who are encouraged to go to college are more likely to do it. Incorporate college discussions into everyday life, and your kids will get the message very early on that attending college is a given.

The family is the single biggest influence on children during the younger years, so talk to your kids about college early. Enlighten kids about the exciting and memorable college experiences to come. College friends, football games, study abroad experiences, fraternity & sorority opportunities, so much to look forward to….help them imagine how much fun it will be! By reinforcing the positives of college and the myriad development and career benefits that come from it, you can really encourage your child to stay motivated in school and pursue a rich & interesting college education.

We offer presentations to help students start dreaming early in high school. Students may not be aware of the many opportunities available to those who attend college. During our college admissions presentations we strive to encourage students to visit campuses & start dreaming about what their college experience might look like. Once they start imagining themselves there, they are often motivated to work harder in school.

We provide educational materials through our consultations, newsletter, blogs & articles. We have the resources you need to help your student get started on the right path. Through our consultations, we can discuss various methods for encouraging your kid to start thinking about their college goals and where they want to attend. College is a big opportunity and that’s our message!
