The PCE Club presents the 106th Monthly Event:
College Application � How To Find the Right College For Your Child
The college search, application, and admission process requires a lot of work. It can also be difficult and confusing for your child. You, as parents, should play a "significant role" in the entire process. Your major roles are providing guidance and support. Your encouragement and assistance can make the experience much easier and less stressful. You can help by dismissing myths such as "the college you attend makes you for the rest of your life". No institution can do that. There is no such thing as only one perfect college for each college-bound student. You can help your child find the college that suits his or her individual needs.
Dominic and Elaine will share how parents can fulfill their "significant role": how to guide their child in college planning and develop the timeline of tasks during the high school years, what the key admission criteria are, what college is worth the "price", how to choose the "right" college, how to prepare for interviews, how to avoid common mistakes made by applicants and parents, most of all, how to enjoy and make the most of the college planning experience that strengthens family relationships!

They have helped many young people and parents with college planning and applications over the years, both for their own children and extended families, and for friends and others in the community.
