In the highly competitive world of college admissions, students really need to be taking steps towards applying to college in the 9th grade, if not even sooner.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
The college admissions universe is vast and confusing. As a result, many students miss out on important academic opportunities early in their high school careers. This webinar, the first in a new series hosted by C2 Education, will address many of these opportunities.
“We find that too many students wait until 11th or 12th grade to start thinking about building a good resume and application for college,” says C2 Education CEO David Kim. “In the highly competitive world of college admissions, students really need to be taking steps towards applying to college in the 9th grade, if not even sooner. There are a lot of opportunities for high school freshman, sophomores, and juniors, but too many students miss out on them simply because they didn’t know these things existed.”
The webinar will be hosted by Ashley Zahn, a project leader with C2 Education’s in-house curriculum development team and C2’s education blog author. Ms. Zahn grew up in metro-Atlanta, where she attended an award-winning high school before earning admission to New York University. Since she started at C2 Education in 2008, Ms. Zahn has taken on many roles, ranging from teacher to administrator. As both a researcher and a writer, Ms. Zahn has delved into nearly every aspect of K-12 education and the college admissions process.
Participants in the webinar will gain insight into the college admissions process in general, as well as several of the lesser known academic opportunities available to high school freshman, sophomores, and juniors. During the college admissions webinar, Ms. Zahn will share information about topics such as:
- Why the PSAT is important
- How grades and course selection affect college admissions
- How the Advanced Placement (AP) program can help lessen college costs
- Why and when to take the SAT II Subject Tests
- How to decide whether to take the ACT or the SAT
