Our August 11, 2019, meeting will be to present an overview of our 2019/20 program and to present books and materials to registered students. Please register in advance as we will not have additional materials on site.

Design of the Program

The major change to our curriculum will be for students to use their college aspirations as the context for guiding their way through the year-long activities. While Mr. and Mrs. Wynn have developed the online curriculum to provide comprehensive guidance, students must discuss that they are learning with their parents. Such conversations are at the core of our program. The curriculum for high school seniors provides guidance through the entirety of the college admissions process from initial college and scholarship research to finalizing enrollment decisions. Students who have participated in our program in grades 9 – 11 will revisit some activities in such areas as researching careers and college majors to finalize their college and scholarship research. 

The curriculum for our high school senior cohort has been completely updated with the released of “A High School Plan for Students with College-Bound Dreams: Third Edition.” The college planning activities for high school seniors are based on a time sensitive senior-year timeline.

High school seniors should be on a timeline to complete the FAFSA4caster, thoroughly research their colleges (based on their body or work), finalize their college list, choose their admission cycles, decide on their essay and writing responses, and list all institutional scholarship deadlines by September 1 of their senior year!

Activities cover such issues as:

  • How to approach essay writing
  • How to approach responding to writing prompts
  • Avoiding mistakes on the Common Application
  • Developing a core autobiographical essay, “My Story.”
  • Creating an email signature to promote your ‘Brand.’
  • Developing an Academic Résumé to serve as a college application and scholarship supplement.
  • Researching colleges and scholarships
  • Completing the FAFSA and CSS Profiles
  • Navigating Financial Aid
  • Registering with the NCAA Clearinghouse
  • Choosing Admissions Cycles
  • Identifying the best college match
  • Recommendation Letters and Teacher/Counselor Evaluations
  • Reviewing Award Letters
  • How to navigate college portals to ensure that you do not miss responding to important requests
  • Why you should order an IRS Transcript
  • What it means to have your FAFSA “Selected for Verification”
  • Making the ‘right’ enrollment decision
