Few issues are more challenging than those involved with navigating our children’s academic futures. The truth is, that in recent years this challenge has become even more complicated. Public school or private; sports or service; in-state college or out; SAT or ACT; tutor or study books. The list goes on. What this space looks to do is to give you a little help in navigating one aspect of this journey: Pre-college Credit. Specifically, our purpose is to help you navigate the world of writing programs.
It does not take long to find those both in and out of education to claim that students struggle with writing. It is equally easy to find out how expensive and competitive getting into universities can be. It is easy to find students who would benefit from pre-college credit. What is not easy is figuring out what the best way to accomplish this might be.
Hopefully, within this website, you will be able to find some of the answers to your questions—and maybe even ask yourself some new ones—regardless if you are a student, parent, or guidance counselor.
