Episode Description

It happens every year. I get a call from a parent who says the following: 1. We’re not getting what we need from school. 2. My kid is a senior in high school. 3. Can you help us? These are three comments I’ve heard more times than I can count and the honest answer is, “No.” I can’t help your daughter OR son if we’re in a situation where you’ve gone so far down the road where your school isn’t delivering what you need. Wanting to attend a dream college late junior year is like asking a girl to prom on prom night. TRUTH: 90% of the college application happens before senior year. Most families don’t realize that while students graduate with 8 semesters of grades, they apply to college with 6 semesters of earned GPA. This means the clock starts ticking freshman year. Most parents do not put themselves in a position to make the difference they could for their kids early enough. If YOU are ready to Stay Ahead, Become a Better Parent and Transform Your Teen’s dreams into reality, this episode is for YOU.
