The Insider’s Guide to College Admissions Testing

Tuesday April 5, 2016 at 4PM Pacific Time
Presented by Senior Academic Advisor Erin Manke

Your child’s academic journey is filled with major milestones increasingly marked by high stakes testing. Starting in elementary school through college entrance exams, there are more tests than ever before that can shape your child’s future. Navigating this labyrinth of college admissions tests can be a confusing and overwhelming undertaking. It’s key for you and your child to understand these tests and how they fit in with the college admissions process. We’ll provide you with an overview of the PSAT, SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, and APs, with a heavy emphasis and deep dive on the SAT and ACT and the things you can do now — no matter what grade your child is — to achieve success on these tests.

What you’ll learn in this webinar:

  • How to create a rock-solid college admissions testing plan for the PSAT, SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, and AP exams
  • A real sense of the testing process and how to best support your child on their unique journey
  • A proper academic assessment of the current state of your child: where they are, where they are going, and how to get on the right path
  • What you and your child can do now — even as early as 6th grade — that can help them get into the college of their dreams.

How Mindset Affects Academic Performance

Tuesday April 14, 2016 at 4PM Pacific Time
Presented by Senior Academic Advisor Eric Hoffman

For most children, receiving a poor grade on a test or failing to make the cut for a sports team is devastating – and it can lead to self-decided labels. We’ve all known friends who “just weren’t math people”, or “not athletically gifted”. As it turns out, how your student thinks about their own potential to grow has massive implications for future success. Dr. Carol Dweck, author of Mindset, has conducted extensive research that reveals the power of a growth mindset, the belief that through continued effort and action you can continue to improve in any area – that even your intelligence can constantly improve! In this webinar, we’ll walk you through some of these amazing findings, and give you practical tips for cultivating a growth mindset in your child. With the right training and discussion, their next poor grade on a test can be the positive spark that drives them forward, rather than dragging them further into academic anxiety.

What you’ll learn in this webinar:

  • Through effort, anyone can improve at anything
  • Failure and challenge are catalysts for growth and development
  • Your child’s academic potential isn’t defined by their past results or innate ability
