The most important thing to help your high schooler gain confidence

Meet Madison.
Madison is a rockstar student of mine from Florida. It wasn’t too long ago, she and her parents weren’t super confident when it came to planning for college. Madison is an A-student who does well with standardized testing…so two boxes were checked…but what more could they do to stand out? And how should they go about building their first school list?

Madison and her parents needed confidence!

Let’s break it down:

Who? Madison (HS Junior) & her parents
Problem: Needed a plan…but more importantly, needed confidence with that plan!
Solution: Join The DCC College Confidence Program
Did it work? On Day 1, Madison was able to gain some confidence, knowing she had a safety net of support:
But recently, Madison reached a crucial milestone, finishing Section 3 in my program. And you can just tell, she’s got a whole different mental state now:
Does that sound like a high schooler who is lost, confused, and behind? Or one who is strutting around high school with confidence, knowing she’s prepared and ahead of the game on her college planning tasks?

Way to go, Madison! You are a rockstar!
Parents, if you want to give your high schooler true, unwavering confidence when they think about their next steps in life, the #1 thing you can give them is a plan of attack, a linear set of small, actionable steps to complete so they can tackle each day with a smile!
Madison has that confidence. If you want your child to have that confidence, don’t hesitate to reach out (or pass the link onto a family who could use it!).

And if you don’t want to talk, that’s okay, too. Perhaps this entirely free 2-year college planning timeline I created can help kickstart your confidence! Enjoy.

Happy college-planning,
