Group Starts to Prepare High School Students for College Applications, Admissions and Transition

 Valerie Tunks, NCC, a life coach at Goose Creek Coaching, will be leading a group of college seniors in a College Application Process and College Preparation group.

The group will focus on preparing college applications, standardized testing, college admissions interviews, selecting a school and transition into college, including preparing to take responsibility for everything from nutrition to finances.

This group is beneficial to any high school senior who is planning on going to college, but wants dedicated time to focus not only on the application, but their goals, plans, and how to achieve those desires once they graduate high school. This group is also good for those trying to figure out what they want to do in with their lives and careers and identifying the schools that would be best for them.

Some of the topics that will be covered include:
  • Setting goals, planning for success and exploring career options and education needs
  • Preparing college essays, applications, personal statements and other materials
  • Financial aid, including student loans, grants and obtaining scholarships
  • Managing your budget and money
Valerie has a significant amount of experience working with high school student and their parents on life transition. The deadline for signing up for the group is September 18.
