In the highly competitive world of college admissions, students need to be taking steps towards applying to college in the 9th grade, if not even sooner.
ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
If you wander into any major bookstore, you’ll likely find an entire section devoted to getting into a good college. With that much information available, it’s no wonder that so many students and parents feel confused by the college admissions process. Unfortunately, this confusion often causes many students to miss out on valuable opportunities early in their high school careers. C2 Education’s new webinar, “The Top 5 Facts Successful High School Students Must Know,” 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.”
This free 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.
Webinar participants will gain insight into the college admissions process in general, as well as some of the lesser known academic opportunities available to students in grades 9 through 11. The webinar will address:
- Why the PSAT is important
- Why students should never try for an “easy A”
- How to earn college credit while still in high school
- Why you should take the SAT Subject Tests
- Whether to take the ACT or the SAT
