The 11th annual "College Readiness for Parents: What Every Parent Needs to Know" seminar is being held at Framingham State University. It is scheduled for Thursday, October 17 at 7-9 PM.
The focus of this event is NOT on financial aid but on helping parents understand the difficulties students have with the transition to college in order to help build the habits needed to become successful. Everyone is welcome to attend, but I’m hoping to get more parents of students in grades 7-10.
Topics to be discussed will be as follows:
Expectations and assumptions of college faculty
Work/study habits and organizational skills: high school vs. college
Why getting good grades now is not a guarantee for future success
