By on April 9, 2012

SUGAR GROVE—“How to Choose the Best College for Your Student and Your Pocketbook” will be presented Saturday, April 21, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Sugar Grove Library, 125 S. Municipal Drive in Sugar Grove. This will be a valuable class for all parents with college-bound students. The class will focus on high school juniors and seniors (all grade levels are welcome). Parents, bring your students.

In this informal class you will learn: insight into SAT/ACT tests and tips on how to score higher; how to help students know which colleges to apply to; what the more selective colleges really want to see in your student’s application; the five questions to ask colleges before applying; how to maximize your potential for scholarships, grants and other gift-aid; how it is possible to attend a private college for a public college price; why procrastination may cost a family thousands of dollars; and a time-line for success—where one should start.

This class will reveal how families with annual income of $80,000-$225,000 received assistance to help pay for a college education.
