This course is designed to educate student-athletes and their parents about navigating the often confusing and generally stressful college search and recruiting process from the student-athlete’s sophomore year through the first semester of the student’s senior year. We will cover the factors that influence a student’s college preferences, process timelines, define recruiting terminology, describe the differences between NCAA divisions and their impact on the student-athletes’ recruitment and college life, identify what coaches are looking for, explain how to get noticed and end up on a “coach’s list." The second session is designed to outline specific academic and athletic action steps for each year of high school and how to develop and implement a proto-typical plan to establish a path for finding the best college for each student-athlete. Tuition is for one student/adult pair. Class meets Tuesday, May 23 and Thursday, May 25.

We'll have a general overview of the "how to" of financing a college education (without athletic scholarships) along with a review of the financial aid process We'll shed light on the alphabet soup of government programs, different types and sources of financial aid and the formula used by colleges to determine financial aid.
