COLLEGE IS EXPENSIVE

If you do the right things in high school and meet key deadlines, you will maximize financial aid for college. This requires a Great College Package©!


College Package?


Your COLLEGE PACKAGE consist of everything notable that you have done academically, extracurricularly, or personally since 8th grade.

GPA
UPWARD TREND
NATIONAL MERIT
DUAL ENROLLMENT
SAT & ACT
AP TESTS
SAT II SUBJECT TESTS
COMMUNITY SERVICE
COMPETITIONS
AWARDS & HONORS
OUT-OF-SCHOOL EXPERIENCES
ESSAYS

Your COLLEGE PACKAGE plus a PORTFOLIO will determine what colleges and universities offer you admission, and how much non-loan financial aid they give you.

Since college applications are due November 1st of the senior year, this is the last date to improve your COLLEGE PACKAGE


In 8th-11th Grade, the goal is to do everything possible to make your package appealing to colleges.


In 12th Grade, the goal is to make the best of the package that you have. This requires a COLLEGE SCREENING to find colleges that will love your package just as it is, and colleges that will offer you money to attend their school.

GET ON THE RIGHT TRACK

Assess Any Problems,
Identify Solutions & Resources,
and
Implement A Plan


There are five key times to get professional academic advising!


ELEMENTARY & MIDDLE SCHOOL

If something is interfering with optimal learning, an educational assessment is needed to find the root cause and discover a solution. Its cheaper & easier when they are younger!


Between 8th - 10th Grades

All students need ONE fully normed test, like PSAT or CPT4 (Stanine) to show mastery in reading, writing, grammar, math, and critical thinking. This is your baseline.


SPRING OF 10th Grade

This is the most critical time to see a college planning specialist. This is where everything diverges and doors begin to permanently close.


11th Grade

An analysis of the College Package is needed before 12th grade to start the admissions and aid process. This is the time for a COLLEGE SCREENING©, FAFSA, Applications, and Scholarships.


COLLEGE YEARS

More than 50% of all college student will eventually drop out. This can set them back for life both financially and emotionally. When students struggle or leave school our COLLEGESLAYER© program will get them back on track.

 Brain Based Learning

Brain Based Learning

 

LEARNING ISSUES?

OPTIMAL LEARNING REQUIRES an environment and style of teaching that is in sync with the way a child's brain learns and retains information.


Six Steps To Learning


INPUT

Information needs to get put in to the brain one concept at a time. This happens through engaged teaching.



ENGAGEMENT

The brain has to attend to the incoming information in order to decode and store it. aka Remember



REVIEW

The student has to actually use the info to create a physical brain connection for that data. aka Learning



TEST

A quick, SHORT, quiz is needed to find out what the student truly understands. This must happen BEFORE practice.



FEEDBACK

This is the missing link. Getting it right does not prove mastery! Now explain why it is right. And why are the other possible answers wrong?



PRACTICE

Now that we know the brain has true mastery of the info, its homework time. Just a tiny bit each day till the neural connection is permanent.
