Description

"28 Days to the Perfect College... for You!" is designed to equip and empower students (and even their parents) to make wise decisions about where to go to college. The four units deliver content that can be completed in 28 days or more quickly depending on the student's schedule. Most importantly, the "True North" activities at the end of each unit are tools that students can use to make major decisions in multiple areas of life, not just choosing a college!

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is designed especially for high school students but would be valuable for anyone considering applying to college.
  • high school seniors who are applying to college and want help writing their essays.
