From supplemental essays to SAT and ACT preparation, the college application process may seem like a daunting task to many students and parents. Beth and Greg Langston, founders of College Flight Plan, assist students through this stressful period and beyond. Beth and Greg take a holistic approach to the college application process, helping students find their purpose and passion along the way. Beth and Greg will share helpful tips on how to elevate one’s college experience, imparting the knowledge they have accumulated over the years as educators and business people. 

Key Takeaways:

Don’t be afraid to get outside help. High school college counselors tend to be overworked, thus seeking extra help benefits students especially in the areas of test preparation and scholarship research. 

Understanding one’s purpose and interests help students find their perfect school and career. 

Set realistic goals that are in line with one’s philosophy and purpose. 

Establish a ‘growth mindset’ which encourages one to believe they can accomplish anything they put their mind to.

Having an accountability partner greatly increases one’s chances of achieving their goals. 

College admissions officers assess three factors: high school grades, extracurriculars, and self-discovery. 

High school students can get a head start by polishing their writing skills, taking SAT and ACT practice tests, touring college campuses early, and beginning their self-exploration journeys.
