We know that freshman year can be a whirlwind of questions for both you and your student. Our goal at CPC is to have Freshman look to the future and recognize the key factors in a college acceptance. Starting the planning process from the beginning can be the difference between a strong college profile and a lackluster application.
The conversation begins by determining if they, in fact, want to go to a four-year college, community college or a tech school? We meet with students 4x over the course of their freshman year. Meetings help to confirm their courses meet the requirement for their goals. We review middle school and discuss goals and concerns for high school. We discuss organizational tips, study skills and recommendations on how to get involved. The student will also be given tools to take a break from their computer and phone and begin to expand vocabulary and read. We will also begin the conversation of college costs, funding options. Starting early gives you the option to grab tutoring sessions to keep your GPA up and explore other courses we offer.
