Find your way through the complex business of choosing post-secondary options, college entrance requirements, financial planning, non-educational career option, critical and independent thinking, preparing for college entrance exams, application processes, scholarships and financial aid. College Planner is a one-semester high-school elective, with the following goals: guiding students in the entire college process; planning for college; selecting the right school; the application process; financial aid; guiding students who may not be headed to college.
The program focuses on the decision-making process of choosing a school, covering both the application process and financial requirements.

Upon completion of the course, students should be able to do the following: articulate reasons for attending college and for choosing a specific institution over another; identify the planning steps to be taken by students during each year of high school; understand the basic differences between the SAT and ACT entrance exams, knowing how best to prepare for each one; understand the major costs of attending college and what financial aid options are available; identify post-high school options for individuals who will not be attending college; additionally, students will gain practice in report-writing, covering topics like God’s plan, admissions essays, college costs, and more.
