It is my pleasure to write about our experience with College Bound Parenting. There is no doubt that because of this program our daughter was prepared to apply to the colleges of her choice, was accepted to several top schools, and received enough scholarships to fund her college education debt-free. What we liked most about this program is that it isn't just written to advise students during an already hectic 12th grade year, instead it is carefully crafted to help students and parents be prepared for the college process at various stages during high school. Because of the direction of the College Bound Parenting team, our daughter Sekai had her resume prepared and reviewed the summer before applying and had several college essay options ready to go. As parents we were made aware of all major financial aid deadlines and were even advised on helpful summer programs for our children.
Sekai's dream is to pursue a science career at an HBCU. It has been our dream for our children to graduate college debt free. We are so blessed that Sekai was accepted into several top HBCU STEM programs. Hampton University will be her new "Home by the Sea" this fall. CBP helped us to present all of her high school work to college admission offices and scholarship committees in a way that resulted in several national and local scholarships which will fund her education.
In keeping with their pattern of not just focusing on the 12th grade year, CBP also continues to work with its students while in college helping them seek scholarship opportunities ensuring their successful completion of college.
Thank you to the CBP team for your vision and for helping families achieve their college goals.
