What is My College Game Plan?

My College Game Plan sessions (MCGP) are designed to provide valuable information and activities that will help your family create a clear, cohesive roadmap to and beyond college acceptance – it is not just about “getting in.”  MCGP provides timely, expert guidance in developing plans for high school, college, and beyond.  In the seemingly high-stakes college application environment, participants exit the workshop more informed of their educational options and less anxious about their future.  The arrival of the high school years and the college application process can be intimidating for students and parents alike.  It doesn’t have to be!  With MCGP, you will have access to the best strategies to formulate a successful high school and college pathway.
