The Dreaded SAT
Taking (and doing well on) standardized tests is a specialized skill. You can have an incredibly gifted child who excels in school, the arts, sports and the theatre but can not take a standardized test. Given the competitive landscape for college admissions, many parents are looking to professionals to help prepare their child for the SAT, ACT and other standardized tests.
Scholarships & Financial Aid
The expense of college is only going to grow and grow. FastWeb is a great place to start. You can find information on over a million different scholarships worth over a billion dollars. That’s a lot of money.
Recruiting for College Sports
If your child happens to be a phenomenal athlete, this may help open the doors to many colleges. Not only can your child’s athletic skills get your her admitted to college, it might be a great way to obtain financial aid as well. There are a number of online resources to help your child get noticed by college recruiters.
