How to help your Student get into Elite Colleges

If you are a parent hoping to help your child get into top colleges, the City of Southlake Parks and Recreation is offering an educational program just for you.

For many, college applications can be a hassle and quite confusing. Add to that, more and more students are applying to the nation’s top colleges, it is becoming increasingly harder to get in. But we’re offering some guidance.

By taking the educational program, parents and teens will learn about what elite colleges look for and how to systematically develop a plan to help increase a student’s odds of admission, including recent trends and what role extracurricular activities of students plays in the process.

Participants will also receive a free copy of the instructor’s e-book on college planning and selection. This session is ideal for parents of 9th– 11th graders, but 12th grade parents are also welcome.
