COLLEGE EXPLORATION: How to use top resource tools to research and build your best-fit college list academically, socially, and financially.
This workshop is ideal for 10th-to-11th-grade students and families.
Naviance is the preferred college search engine for many high school students since the software company contracts with many K–12 institutions and acts as an online filing cabinet for student data as early as sixth grade.
In order to do a thorough college search, students and their parents should use a variety of resources to determine best-fit colleges. Additionally, aside from a general checklist of college criteria such as size, location, and cost, families should dig deeper. It is critical to understand % retention rates, % of students accepted Early Decision versus Regular Decision, and Average Net Cost vs. Sticker Price, as well as other data that will help round out a robust college list that gives students the best chance at college success.
