For most students, the road to college is a family affair. Decisions made as early as 8th grade can have long lasting implications about the kinds of opportunities that will be available after high school. The college application process has changed drastically in the past 30 years. Many parents fondly recall simply mailing their typed applications to a handful of colleges (yes, it was pre-internet for many of us), only to be accepted at most or all of them. Well, times have certainly changed! The advent of standard platforms, like Common App, have led to a dramatic increase in application volumes, which, in turn, has resulted in record low acceptance rates and decisions that seem to make little sense to the average applicant. With so much conflicting information, it’s no wonder parents feel anxious and ill-prepared to help their children navigate high school and guide them to college.
The Mauler Institute™ is dedicated to helping families navigate the road to college with minimal stress and anxiety. A critical part of that is arming parents with the correct information, tools, timelines and advice to guide and support your children to success.
Preparation is important. After all, every choice a high school student makes, from the classes they take to the activities that fill their summers will impact their college admissions process. Do you know how to guide them through this important journey?
