I'm applying to college, now how do I survive the process?

An event designed for high school students to help them learn the skills necessary to stay calm, organized and optimistic during the college application process.

Is your teen approaching their senior year of high school and beginning to feel the stress of choosing and applying to colleges? Are they worried about their GPA, SAT/ACT scores, essays, and acceptances? Do they feel overwhelmed making decisions about their future while balancing their classwork and activities? How can you help your teen stay calm and organized during the process? Our workshop, “I'm applying to college, now how do I survive the process?” can help!
