How to pay less for college



Dear Upper School Parents of 9th,10th and 11th graders,

Mark your calendars, the college counseling team are excited for the new Funding College Webinar offering this year.

What Parents Need to Know Now about Paying Less for College webinar presented by SMARTTRACK® College Funding on Thursday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m.

ADVANCED REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED – CLICK HERE to create your complimentary account and register for the webinar. Registrants will receive a recording of the event.

This program was highly recommended by other independent schools and we are offering it as an option for families this year. Information from SMARTTRACK® :“Most families are surprised to learn that with a little planning, they can significantly lower out-of-pocket college costs, maximize grants and scholarships, and minimize debt. We are providing the SMARTTRACK® College Funding High School Initiative to assist our 9th-11th grade families with the financial piece of college planning. If you’re concerned that you won’t qualify for financial aid, haven’t saved enough, or don’t have an effective plan to cover the considerable costs of educating all your children, SMARTTRACK® can help.

To be held separately: College Counseling Financial Aid Night on Tuesday, October 4 at 7:00 p.m. in the Schoedinger Theater. We highly recommend attending this program if you are interested in
learning more about how and when to apply for need-based financial aid. Unable to attend but interested in related information? Please reach out to us at collegecounseling.

Kind regards,

The CC Team
