College Search Without Stress

 

A Webinar Series arranged by:

The 2021 Lincoln Park High School IB Juniors Parent Organization  

WHY FAMILIES IN THE COLLEGE SEARCH PROCESS NEED THIS WEBINAR SERIES:

Student resumes. Standardized tests. Teacher recommendations. College visits. Common application essays. These are just a few of the many stressful demands that families experience in the college search process, concurrently during the all-too-busy junior and senior years of high school. Many families attempt to face these challenging milestones alone on their own – without taking advantage of the resources and tools that can help them to manage the stress of the entire process.

 

This webinar series is designed with BOTH the student and parents in mind. Families will learn strategies for navigating the college search process from two world-renowned experts:  Dr. Bruce Neimeyer helps families worldwide to navigate the college search process and Dr. Suzie Carmack is a world-renowned well-being scholar and coach. They are also parents who have navigated the college search process personally  -- and they designed this series to help both students and their parents to enjoy this often challenging (and stressful) college search journey.
