One day they’re your baby and the next thing you know they’re applying for college. Not only are emotions attached to this process, but also the uncertainty of what needs to be done, when it needs to be done and how to ensure you haven’t missed something.

There are application requirements, deadlines, standardized testing, required courses, searching for scholarships, financial concerns and finding the college with the right fit.

There is so much to know – in fact – you may not even know what you don’t know.

However, there is a solution….attend a college admissions group workshop offered by Prep U4 Success. We offer a detailed, step-by-step workshop along with an 80-page workbook that walks you through the A-Z’s of the admissions process and demystifies it all.

We have not only been there as a parent, but also as an Independent Education Consultant. Review our testimonials below:
