9/12 Workshop: Managing the College Admission Frenzy / Why "Fit" Matters

This program is presented in partnership with Challenge Success and the GATE Parents Group. 

The college admissions process can be a source of stress and anxiety for students and parents alike. This research-based workshop addresses many of the important questions we hear from families. What do college rankings really measure? Are students who attend more selective colleges better off later in life? What is “fit” and why does it matter? 

Participants will learn practical strategies to help reduce unnecessary pressure around the college admissions process and ways to support their student’s overall well-being and readiness for life in college and beyond. Participants will leave with practical strategies to apply at home and at school.
