What Parents of Gifted/HiCap Students Must Know About College Planning

For Students in Grades 8-11

NWGCA is delighted to host Susan Goodkin, a national college consultant who specializes in gifted students and selective colleges. This is crucial information to help plan your high schooler's course registration for next year, whether they are an entering freshman, or a rising senior, as well as help them prioritize their time throughout their high school years.


The college admissions process has changed radically since today’s parents applied! This webinar will help parents of gifted/HiCap students understand what’s important (and what isn’t) for college admissions. We’ll cover topics including grades, curriculum, testing, extracurriculars, and the college application. You’ll also learn about the biggest college planning mistakes and how to avoid them. Finally, we’ll address the impacts COVID-19 has had on college planning (they’re big!), and the implications for 9th, 10th and 11th graders. A question and answer session will follow the talk.
