College Admissions Boot Camp for Parents
An Elevated Admissions Course
Starting June 8th, 2021
What will this College Admissions Boot Camp Cover?
A lot has changed about the admissions process and it is now -- arguably -- one of the most complicated, stressful, and overwhelming periods of parenting. And that's why Elevated Admissions launched this Boot Camp.
Whether your teen is a freshman just starting to think about college, or a junior already on the front edge of the process, our Boot Camp is designed to take you from feeling overwhelmed to being informed and ready to guide your student through all of the stages required.
We'll cover six core topics over eight weeks, allowing for a two week break over Fourth of July. At the end of each thirty minute session, there will be fifteen minutes for Q&A so you can make sure you really understand the material. Plus, all of the sessions will be posted on our website so you will be able to reference the material in real time later, as you're working with your student.
