How to Avoid the College Planning Scramble

Did you know that when parents are asked about their aspirations for their teens when they reach adulthood, financial independence and career satisfaction rank among the highest?

Roughly nine in ten parents say it’s extremely or very important and equally important that their teens have jobs or careers they enjoy. Also, parents worry their teen lacks direction for post-high school plans, and the college planning conversations lack direction. Is this you?

Hear what Heather W., a My Ideal College client, had to say: I highly recommend My Ideal College to anyone with a high schooler. My daughter went from having no idea what she might like to do after high school to feeling confident about what path she wants to take. With the high cost of college, it is well worth this investment. I’ve talked to many parents whose teen went into the wrong field of study and ended up wasting a lot of time and money. Laurie is amazing with teens and has created such a great program that helps take away some of the uneasiness that comes with the college search. Thank you, Laurie!
