Because finding your child’s passion matters.

Can College Ready Help Your Child With Their College Applications?

When getting accepted to the schools of your choice and securing large scholarships and grants, the best results come when you, your son or daughter, and your College Ready admissions counselor are all fully aligned and in sync in the approach to the college application process. Watch this video to learn the particulars.

Is your high school student ready for college? Are you ready to lead them through the college application process? You have important choices to make when it comes to selecting your target schools and applying to them. You get to choose how you approach things. Let’s take a look at some of decisions you’ll be making.

As we talk through a particular aspect of applying to college, think about which one will you choose. Also, think about whether you are choosing intentionally or by default.

Will you be overwhelmed by the complexity of applying to college? Or will you be stress-free because you know the inside best practices and have a strategic plan?

Will you be playing catch-up the whole time because you didn’t start the process with your son or daughter soon enough? The simple answer is to start right now regardless of what age they are or what grade they are in.

Are you letting your 17-year-old pick a college or university based simply on having a favorite football or a basketball team? Or will you do the analysis to make sure that there’s an academic fit, a social fit and, of course, a financial fit for your family.

Will you allow your student to go into debt by taking out massive student loans or do you know which schools are the most generous when it comes to granting aid and scholarships?

Do you want to do what everybody else is doing in their applications and college essays or will your student have a strategy and plan that makes them a standout candidate for admission?

Will you be guessing at what colleges want to see this year or next in their admitted students? Or would you like inside knowledge on what they really are looking for in their student population?

We are happy to give to you a free Discovery Call so you can answer all of those questions and make the best choice in how to proceed with the process. Please book a call for a time that’s convenient for you and your child and let’s get started.

Featured Testimonial: “College Ready was a lifesaver for my family…”

“Where do I even begin? College Ready was a lifesaver for my family. My daughter was so overwhelmed and stressed out, all we did was argue. I thought I was early signing up with College Ready but what I found out, is that my daughter was so stressed because she was falling quickly behind. There were so many parents sharing information, I did not know who to believe or trust. One afternoon when I picked my daughter up from school, she got in the car and broke down in tears. The pressure had gotten to her and I knew it was time to seek help. I remember hearing Ms. Howard speak at her National Charity League Tea event and I knew it was time to give her a call. She took the time to answer all my questions over the phone and when we met in person, I could see my daughter smile with relief. We hired College Ready that evening and it was honestly the best decision I have made for my family. On top of that, my daughter got accepted into 11 colleges and 7 of them she received a significant amount of money! She will graduate debt free!” ~ Doreen L., Parent
