Parents of sophomores learn about the college planning process

The recent Sophomore Parent College Info Night provided an introduction to the Lauralton Hall college planning curriculum. The program is designed to assist parents in understanding the college planning process in broad strokes. Lauralton Hall believes that educating parents about the components of the college process as well as the school’s holistic philosophy about this process helps alleviate stress for parents and students alike. In recent years, the college planning process has become a multi-billion dollar business and there is now a tremendous amount of misinformation among parents about the process. The guidance department prefers to disseminate information rather than have parents waft through much of the unreliable information that is out there. At Lauralton, the college planning process begins in freshman year and Sophomore Parent College Night provides the perfect opportunity to bring parents into the mix to make them aware of how extensive the program is and how much attention is given to the individual student in finding “the right fit.”

According to Connie Tallman, Guidance Department Chair: “The program was extremely successful! We had a huge turnout – the largest ever - and it’s clear that parents appreciate our straightforward and informative approach to this often overwhelming process.”

Donna Hansen, mother of sophomore Morgan Hansen, found the presentation very valuable: "I was so relieved after attending Sophomore Parent College Info Night. It was really helpful to have the entire process explained to us, especially the timeline. It is comforting to know that there is a knowledgeable, experienced team devoted to college admissions and I am confident that they will help us find the right school for our daughter."
