20% of Students Graduate on Time – How to Prepare Your Student
There is a growing problem with our students’ education. Statistically more and more students are graduating high school completely unprepared for college. The result is that more and more students are taking 5 and even 6 years to graduate. Not only are families forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars more than they need to, students that don’t graduate on time run a higher risk of not graduating at all!
Join me for a free webinar to discuss how you can make sure your student is prepared for the challenges ahead.
Who Is the Host?
Hi! My name is Austin Fadely, and I am a student and young-professional success coach. I’ve spent over eight years in the education industry writing textbooks for companies like Sylvan, Kaplan, McDougal Littel, and Pearson.
I’ve also worked directly with students as a tutor and volunteer at high schools in the DC/MD/VA area. I wrote Conquering College, a guide to help high schoolers and parents navigate the college application and scholarship process.
Over the years, I have met with students, academic advisors, admissions counselors, and recent grads. Almost everyone I’ve spoken to acknowledges a pervasive problem: students just aren’t prepared for college. Simply put, high school graduates lack the skill set to do well in college, even the “A+” students.
Though many students do eventually adjust, the time lost causes most students to stay in college at least a semester longer. In fact, only 20% of students graduate in 4 years. That lost time can cost families an average of $11,000 a semester! Not to mention, students whose grades slip may risk losing scholarship money.
I want to show you and your student what you can do to hit the ground running. We need to reverse this trend; college is expensive enough without paying for extra semesters.
What Will this Webinar Cover?
I’ve packed as much information as I can into one hour. We will discuss:
- Why are students graduating high school unprepared for the next step?
- What skills does your student need (but hasn’t been taught) to succeed on Day 1?
- If your student is behind already, what can be done to catch up?
- What University resources are available for students and why should they use them?
I’ll also leave time to take your questions at the end.
