If your teen graduates next spring and intends to go to college, there’s a lot for your teen to do this school year (in addition to keeping up those grades, of course).
If you have a high school junior or senior who is about to start applying to colleges, cost and financial aid might be top of your mind. One of the best ways to lower the cost of college, of course, is by earning scholarships—and the more your teen applies, the greater chance he has of securing some scholarship money.
If you’ve got a college-bound teen, you’re probably at least a little familiar with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), but do you know how this application can affect your teen’s future?
After working toward a future that seemed far off, the time has finally come for your teen to graduate high school and head to college and into the real world. After all of your teen’s hard work leading up to this point, it’s important for them to finish strong.
So, your college-bound student is starting to think about taking the SAT and/or ACT this summer—for the first, second or even third time. A summer exam prep plan is definitely in order.
Parents of high school students have plenty on their minds, but at the top of the list is paying for college—and for good reason. While many families plan on taking out federal loans to help cover the cost, teens should absolutely apply for scholarships.
With school on break, summer is a great chance for high school students to dedicate time to the college search, including looking for scholarships. The process of finding and applying for scholarships takes commitment and effort, however.
If your teen complained about being bored last summer, it’s time to reframe the thinking. Summer break is a perfect opportunity to gain experience and better oneself.
College entrance exam scores are a significant factor in admission too. Make sure your teen prepares effectively for the SAT or ACT with an exam prep program.
