Parenting a high schooler through the college admissions process isn’t easy. Every aspect of the application process carries more weight than ever before and, even worse, seems very different from the way things used to be. The SAT and ACT are no exception; with constant public and secret revisions, the tests differ dramatically from the ones we took thirty–or even just three–years ago. How can you keep up with what the tests are, why they matter, and what you as a parent or guardian can and should do about them?
Ask an expert.
After over 25 years as a test prep teacher, tutor, manager, author, podcaster, curriculum developer, product director, and business owner, I’ve picked up a thing or two about the SAT and ACT. This excess of knowledge is not a burden, but rather a gift… one that I love to share. I speak regularly on the topic of the big tests at schools, libraries, and other locations. But for as long as institutions are shut down, we’re living online, so that’s where we can talk about the SAT and ACT.
- …wondering what the SAT and ACT are, why they matter, and what you should do about them?
- …curious about evolving policies in college admissions and how they affect your high schooler?
- …panicked about the impact of school closings, test postponements, and activity cancellations on your teen’s admission prospects?
I would be happy to share all the answers I have with you for free! Join me every Wednesday from 6-7pm EST for a full review of the state of the SAT and ACT, their importance in the admissions process, and how the situation is evolving right now. No matter where you live, you are invited to attend one of these free parent seminars. We will definitely cover planning and timelines, and you will definitely be able to ask questions.
Attendance is free, but advance registration is required. Register through our Student Information Form and specify the Online SAT/ACT Q&A for Parents. We will reply to registrants by email with the invitation to this Zoom seminar.
We plan to offer these free parent seminars through the current crisis and probably beyond. Join me this Wednesday or some other to add some certainty to these uncertain times!
