College: An employee/client priority

At College Bound Academy, we work every day with parents who are concerned about how they will find the right college fit for their son or daughter – and how they will find the money to pay for it. For example:

In a recent study by the Sallie Mae Education Institute, 31 percent of parents surveyed said their child’s college education was their “highest priority.”

According to the Princeton Review “Colleges Hopes & Worries Survey,” 51 percent of parents surveyed agreed that financial aid (education loans, scholarships or grants) will be “extremely necessary” to help pay for college.

De-stress your employees/clients

Financial Concerns are often cited as a primary cause of employee and client stress. And because stress related to finances can negatively impact employees’/clients’ personal and professional lives, employers are increasingly looking for opportunities to provide personal financial education.

Our Lunch-and-Learn and Speaker Engagement ‘benefits’

At College Bound Admissions Academy, we believe that sharing college preparation information, and becoming a resource to employees is a valuable “benefit” that contributes to good financial wellness.

Our free, one-hour workshops address the changing landscape of the college admissions and financial aid process - and offer proved strategies that employees can apply to their family’s college search. These workshops are offered at no charge to companies or their employees and include:

  • Strategies for identifying a “best college fit” for your child
  • Creating top college choices that are affordable
  • How colleges award money
  • Maximizing financial aid from all sources

Plus, participants receive practical information that will help them make the most of college visits, meet deadlines for applications and financial aid forms, and negotiate with colleges to increase their financial aid packages.
