Parents Seminars


Parent Seminars
Three different seminars for parents are typically offered at Fall conference time:
"Show Me the Money" is a seminar that covers scholarship opportunities for seniors heading to college next year and how to research them.
"Senior Seminar", a discussion of postsecondary planning, is for parents of seniors.
"Junior Seminar" answers the question "Where do we begin to plan for life after high school?" This is a seminar for parents of juniors.
See below for links to the powerpoints from these seminars.

There are also two presentations for parents offered in the Spring:
"College Credit Options for High School Students" is a seminar intended for any and all parents who would like more information on the various options for getting college credit while in high school. CITS, PSEO, CLEP and AP classes are all covered.
"Life After High School Issues and College Planning Now" is the title of the second seminar. It is more specifically for parents of juniors who plan to continue their education beyond high school. Topics include college entrance exams, college selection, application process, time lines, NCAA issues, scholarship opportunities, and more.
