Countdown to College

Dear Parents and Students,

Please plan to join us for the Countdown-to-College Workshop with Potential on October 18th from 10am-11:30 am at Wilcox Central High School. This information-packed workshop is designed to help 8th-12th grade students and their parents prepare for college.

Potential is committed to help teens reach their full potential. With the large number of college and career choices, parents and students are not always sure where to begin.  The Countdown-to-College Workshop is formatted as a panel with representatives from 3-5 colleges and universities. There will be opportunities to ask questions throughout the workshop.

At the end of the workshop, there will be the chance for a door prize so make sure to stay through the end for a chance to win a free JBL Speaker! Attendees will leave this workshop with:

  • Insight into the college admissions process
  • Scholarship opportunities
  • Tips to earn scholarships
  • Full understanding of the 3 areas that ACT scores impact
  • ACT/SAT tips for improving scores
  • Impacts of different real-life scenarios (missing deadlines, changing your mind, etc)
  • Benefits of community college attendance and dual-enrollment
  • Tips to maximize your FAFSA-based grants and awards

 There will be registration forms provided at the workshop. The registration form will be entered into our scholarship drawing for a chance to win a $500 scholarship so please make sure to fill out all of the presented fields. (parents – your registration card counts as a bonus application!)
