Parent of a high school sophomore or junior? There are two things you should do today to help your child begin the college search
Does your child have a “different > difficult” project? They should.
Written by Jack Delehey on September 02nd, 2022
Meet Bella. Bella is a rockstar student of mine from (Senior, Richardson, TX). She’s 3rd in her class (out of over 500), has stellar test scores and puts in tremendous effort into her college planning. She really is exceptional to say the least!
But even Bella didn’t quite know how to really help herself stand out from the crowd of students all playing the same college admissions game.

In fact, when we started the discussion of standing out in her upcoming college applications, she said the following:

“I’ve heard people mention having a sort of passion project that would help set me apart in college missions, which (until now) just seemed like an overwhelming and unapproachable task.”

If Bella…the 3rd ranked student in her entire class feels this way, it’s safe to say many high schoolers across the country feel stress, confusion, and anxiety when things like “passion projects” and “standing out in the admissions game” are brought up.

Fast forward one week later…one week working through my program…and here’s the note I got from Bella in my inbox:
Want to learn more about what, exactly, the “different > difficult” project is? You can check out my recent blog post where I describe it in detail.

Think your high schooler could benefit from turning “overwhelming and unapproachable” into “I’m really excited to start working!”? If so, reach out! (Or pass the link onto a parent who could use it.) College admissions isn’t rocket science…but there IS a scientific process to guarantee happiness & success for high school students across the country (and their parents!)

To your college planning success.
