Dr. Tomei would like to offer some helpful information to high school students and their parents. He has been working with Beasley College Consulting over the last several years. Being a parent just like so many of you, he knows that college planning can be very overwhelming. These are some tips from the consultant that he would like to share with you.
Use the years spent in high school to develop life skills that will allow you to do well in college not just to get into a college.
Choose classes wisely. Pick ones that will balance your strengths, weaknesses, and time. Maintain a smooth transition during senior year instead of "blow off" courses.
Parents should gradually give children some freedom to make their own decisions and schedules during their senior year. This will allow them to make some mistakes and learn from them before going off on their own.
Continue to make reading part of everyday life. Discuss books, suggest articles, and lead by example.
Travel when possible. Getting a child used to new surroundings, people, and culture will help them to transition into a new school. This can be done even through day trips to nearby cities.
Make your child aware of all the daily tasks you do for them. Gradually teach them how to do them on their own so they are prepared before they leave for college.
Know what careers, areas of interest, and colleges are available to your student. Using a consultant in addition to school counselors can be very useful. Narrowing down what interests your child, their demographics, their ideal college environment, and financial situation can all be compiled to find the best fit. Consultants know the ins and outs to getting your student prepared with the correct class schedule in high school, and the appropriate times to apply to college, housing, and scholarships/financial assistance. It really can make the difference in getting your child into their first choice school.
Lastly remember that after applications are sent the work is not over! You can log in periodically to check the status of your application. Check emails regularly. Keep copies of all applications in case any pieces get lost. Some scholarships have later deadlines so continue to search for those. Check with your counseling office to find out about scholarships offered by local civic groups and businesses. Keep up with your schoolwork and notify admissions if you drop any classes. Remember that most admissions are contingent upon successful completion of senior year.
Now back to what we know best...Don't forget to prepare your college student to take charge of their dental health. Lead by example and drop some friendly reminders to take care of their teeth and gums. Remind them that healthy eating habits are important for their teeth as well. We see many freshmen come home in the summer with many new cavities due to energy drinks, pop, and candy. Arm them with the tools they need including toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and fluoride rinses. These make a great care package!
