The thought of what’s next after high school should not be daunting, or stressful for students and their parents. It is an exciting time of change and transition.

Our goal, mission at Get College Going is to help family’s find the right education, for the right reason, at the right school, for the right investment.
Planning is Essential
Most college planning begins when a student enters high school. The thought of going to college can start even earlier as middle school (and younger) parents focus on developing a student academically and personally while managing everyday needs, saving for college, and retirement. When a student enters high school, the actual planning begins with eyes on finding one’s education and career pathway after high school.
College planning does not have to be overwhelming or stressful whether it is a first-time experience or with multiple ages. Understanding tasks, responsibilities, and activities, and mapping them out in a comprehensive plan is key. A plan that typically begins in the junior year but can work for a scrambling senior, a transfer, or individuals re-entering. Managing a plan to address the needs before, during, and post-high school will make every college experience a success.

Everything Begins with a Conversation
Step One: We’ll meet to talk about goals, expectations, and what stage the planning process is now. We’ll ask some questions, share some information, and identify if we can help. If we all agree, we’ll outline a plan and get started.
Step Two: Build a college list based on a student’s academic and personal accomplishments, and other interests including athletics, performing arts, and specialties.
Step Three We’ll work hand-in-hand to review and evaluate options, identify and monitor admissions & financial aid deadlines. We’ll work to help a student build campus relationships to communicate interests and stand out!
Step Four: Finally, we’ll advise through admissions and financial aid application processes, and help everyone deal with the waiting period. We’ll applaud college acceptances, review financial aid awards, discuss tuition payment strategies, and help to turn options into successful choices.
Because we know the transition can bring its challenges, we offer a 13th Year and Beyond Program to make sure life on campus and post-college is successful.
