Who should attend?
Parents who went to college
If you went to college and now have high school aged children, you are probably realizing that things are different today than they were when you went to college. Things are more competitive, more complicated, and more expensive. It is easy to get bogged down in information overload and difficult to find the time to focus on something that seems so far away. At the CAC Seminar you will have a few dedicated hours to focus on this very important subject with your child. You will walk away with a plan that you and your child can use in the months to come.
Parents who didn’t go to college
If your child will be the first in the family to go to college, the work can feel even more overwhelming. Your choices in high school may have been different than the choices your children have today. The CAC Seminar will give you and your child a chance to get answers to the questions you have about college. You will have time to talk with your child about what they want and the best way for them to get it.
High school students
We recommend that you attend the CAC Seminar with someone else. If your parent, caregiver, or mentor is not available, identify a friend or two that you think would benefit from the experience. You can collaborate throughout the day. You will learn about how to choose the right college, college applications, and financial aid. By attending with more than one person you will lower the cost and have a better overall experience.
You should attend if:
- Your family is so busy that you haven’t found the time to create a college plan.
- You aren't confident about getting accepted to your dream college or getting scholarship for which you apply.
- You know college is in your future but are not really sure where to start.
- You have questions about how to select the best colleges for you (from among the 3,000 in the US).
- You think that you don’t qualify for scholarships (but you probably do).
- You think your child will figure all of this out him/herself without help or guidance (they may not).
