Philadelphia Summer Academy 2016

Determine your career and choose the best college in one week!

Is your son looking forward to going to college but not sure which one is right for him?  Or maybe your daughter knows that college is the best decision after high school but is anxious about the process because she can’t determine which of a number of promising career options is best.

Have you seen other parents overwhelmed by the college selection process, committed to paying large tuition bills but not sure how to help their children navigate their unique decisions?  How would you feel if your child had a plan for choosing a great career and was equipped to identify the schools that would help him or her reach it?

What if that was possible in just one week?

This summer’s Academy walks students through two proven programs for college success: My College Life Coach’s True North and Your Perfect College.  In one week your child will lay the foundation for making sound decisions about college that will have a lasting impact on his or her success.
