Description

High school counseling teams in most public high schools are stretched - and private college counselors are expensive. High School to College is an in-depth course on college readiness to develop knowledge and skills in high school students in four areas:
 
1.    Branding and Career Planning.  Students identify interests and strengths, and map them to potential careers. Students explore macroeconomic indicators to research in-demand occupations and industries that are upward-trending, exploring college as a route to rewarding careers.

2.    Postsecondary Institution Analysis:  Students evaluate the best institution type (Career School, 2-year or 4-year College) which meets their career goals.

3.    Outcome-based College Selection.  For selective colleges, students consider factors in college admission decisions and graduation outcomes to quantitatively evaluate their chances - and develop strategies - to get into choice colleges. 

4.  College Admission Tips and Tricks - Students learn about different ways to maximize their chances of gaining admission to their favorite colleges.

Who this course is for:
  • High school students, families of high school students and first generation college families.
