Pathways to College programs generally run from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Students and parents spend approximately half the day together. The remainder of the day is spent in separate workshops geared toward students’ and parents’ specific interests. Students attend workshops on the admissions process and writing the personal essay while parents attend sessions on the admissions process and applying for financial aid and scholarships. Families will also have the opportunity to explore the host college’s campus together. Continental breakfast and lunch are included unless indicated otherwise.
What participants are saying about Pathways...
We attended last year. Absolutely loved it. The price is a bargain for the plethora of information we received. It really did allow us to calm down from all of the swirl of information from other parents. My son is a Freshman in high school this year and we believe that he is on a great track to position himself for whatever college he chooses in the future. Thank you CTY for this very valuable program.
