How can all the pieces be put together understandably?

When high school students begin looking for and then applying to attend college, they are squarely in the present (high school), making choices for the future (college) based on what they imagine the experience will be like.

Juniors and Seniors work hard to do well in high school. Some have taken leadership roles, but high school is mainly structured and focused on the overall group. Students respond to expectations developed by well-trained and intentioned adults.

High school is full of competition for students, so that aspect of the college search process can feel familiar.

Have you ever gotten caught up in a contest or event where winning was very important? You win, and the prize may be exactly what you were working for – or it’s just the prize.

Choosing the right college enhances the positive outcome of the investment both you and your teen are making.
