Planning Ahead for Your College Career

Wednesday, September 12 2018
06:00 PM PDT

Location: 706 Williams Blvd, Richland

Sage College Prep Services would like to invite you to our fall series of college prep seminars, sponsored by Gesa Credit Union.  The seminars are free (with dinner provided!), but we encourage you to register early, since these events reach capacity quickly. 

A college degree can transform your life and lifestyle.  Individuals with a college degree generally enjoy greater wealth and security, better health, a closer family, and a stronger community.  However, a successful college experience requires planning – planning that begins in high school.  In this seminar, Dr. Rich Quadrel will describe how to build a semester-by-semester plan for high school students and families to maximize their opportunities to successfully enroll in the college of their choice.

A good college plan has five elements:  planning your academic curriculum, selecting extracurricular activities, finding the right college, assembling a successful college application, and paying for college.  In this first seminar, Dr. Quadrel will provide an overview of the plan and then focus on the first two elements (the other three elements will be covered in future seminars).  He will discuss how to choose an appropriate curriculum track, the importance of maintaining a good GPA, and a comparison of advance credit options such as Advanced Placement (AP) classes and Running Start.  For extracurricular activities, Dr. Quadrel will emphasize “quality” over “quantity” and how to focus your activities to demonstrate initiative, commitment, progress, and leadership. 

To register for this seminar, go to https://www.gesa.com/learn/seminars

Scroll down to the Seminar Schedule and click on “Sage College Prep Series Session 1” 

The seminars will be held at the Anthology Event Center, 706 Williams Blvd., Richland.

The seminars are intended for the families of college-bound high school students – parents and students are all welcome.  We hope to see you there!
