October Information Session
Our October Information Session focuses on what high school juniors should be doing to expand their college and scholarship opportunities. While many parents believe that their students are amazing and they are certain to be offered admission to their top college, the reality is full of disappointment. Unfortunately, each year, thousands of high school seniors realize far too late in the process that they did not do the right things as high school juniors and did not position themselves to earn enough scholarship money to avoid student loan debt. Equally disappointing is that students’s failed to apply to the right colleges, apply through the right admissions cycles, or apply for the right scholarships. All because students failed to develop the right plan.
2 of the states where the majority of our participating students attend school (Georgia and Florida), despite their state scholarships, are among the top 5 states of the largest student loan borrowers.
However, avoiding student loan debt is less about where you live or where you attend high school. Avoiding student loan debt is dependent on developing a body or work that will gain admission into the ‘right’ colleges and qualifying for the ‘right’ scholarships as the following high school juniors did.
Faith (GA) developed a body of work that gained her admission to The University of Chicago and selection as a Ron Brown Scholar.
Kimberly (GA) developed a body of work that gained her admission to Williams College (and full scholarship offers from Princeton, Vanderbilt, Washington & Lee, Amherst, and Duke).
Tyra (GA) developed a body of work that resulted in her selection as a Georgia Tech Clark Scholar.
Jayla (SC) developed a body of work that gained her admission to Williams College.
Omar (GA) developed a body of work that gained him admission to Brown and selection as a Jack Kent Cooke College Scholar.
Xavier (SC) developed a body of work that resulted in his selection as a Distinguished Presidential Scholar at Tuskegee University.
Tiffani (PA) developed a body of work that gained her admission to Vassar.
Joanne (FL) developed a body of work that gained her admission to Johns Hopkins University and her selection as a Jack Kent Cooke College Scholar.
Jordan (GA) developed a body of work that gained her admission to the University of South Carolina (as well as to Harvard, UC Berkeley, and Northwestern) and being awarded a $260,000 speech and debate scholarship.
The body of work developed by each of these students across our 3 pillars of scholarship, leadership, and service was done so as part of a comprehensive strategy focused on being offered admission to the ‘right’ colleges and qualifying for the ‘right’ scholarships.
