Are you ready to launch?

In the past year, both parents and students have been put through the ringer. You’ve missed out on “normal” college prep experiences like orientations and in-person college visits. You’ve tackled distance learning and wonky schedules. You’ve missed out on activities, athletics, proms, and ceremonies. Some of you moved your student off to campus, only to move them back home a few short weeks later. Others never even got that far!

Normal or not, the high school-to-college transition is still a big deal!

While we’ve had a year like never before, some things remain the same. Launching (or relaunching) into the college years is a time of mixed emotions for both students AND parents. It is stressful and scary, but at the same time exciting and powerful!

Parents, YOU have a vital role in setting your student up for a successful launch. 

Countless studies and reports confirm this. Your support and healthy involvement matters. How can you reduce anxiety and confusion AND instill confidence and excitement in your college-bound student?

Students, this is a LOT to process, but you have the skills. 

You just might want a little guidance before you go. Kelly can answer all your questions and offer you suggestions to reduce your anxiety, adjust into campus life, improve roommate relations, combat homesickness, and achieve academic success.
