Video highlights include:
Terry McCue, Assistant Head of School and Director of College Counseling at Hathaway Brown, says the college process can be a little easier if students maintain a good attitude about learning all through high school. She recommends taking some co-curricular classes.
Courtney Walls from BlackRock explains that 529 Savings Plans are a great way to save for college. She clarifies tax ramifications.
David Armstrong, Esq., Vice President and Legal Counsel at Notre Dame College, shares practical steps for parents of teenagers to identify the right fit.
Families should look at college degrees as investments that ultimately can give students more options with potential careers, where they choose to live and how they spend their time, he says.
“You will take out a loan for a car that’s going to rust. You’ll take out a loan for a TV that’s going to break,” Armstrong says. “But yet, you won’t invest in yourself?”
