How to prepare your TCK for college

Aug 5, 2021 | 0 comments

You know the day is coming. But what seemed so far off is suddenly not some remote possibility, and that little cutie is closer and closer to flying the nest.

What?! (I know, right?!)

Or maybe your little one is still little and college seems SO FAR OFF. Tuck this away for later.

Does the thought of helping your TCK apply to college send shivers up your spine? Do you feel overwhelmed and unsure where to even start?

When I crossed paths with Kristi Steele, she casually mentioned her roadmap for the final four years a TCK in is high school that will help prepare them for college. She went on to say that unfortunately many parents start a tad too late to prepare their TCK.

Until now. This month’s workshop is for parents and those who work with TCKs.

In the workshop, Kristi Steele will provide you a four year road map starting with 9th grade. She will guide you through what you and your TCK need to focus on in 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade to be ready for college. In addition, this workshop addresses:

—College search timeline
—Resources for choosing a major
—Connecting with universities
—Virtual college fair

I don’t want this to be you: You desire to help your TCK, but you’re clueless.

A few months ago, as one of my high school aged nieces and I were talking about what she might want to do as a job. She is incredibly talented (as are all nieces and nephews!), but not sure what she wants to do. I tried to be helpful, but when I suggested food science as a major and she asked me to explain it…we were suddenly in deep water and I was floundering.

Desiring to be helpful, it turns out, is not the same as actually being helpful.

If you’ve been around Global Trellis any length of time, you know that I do not say, “This workshop will save you money.” But I truly believe that this workshop can give you and your TCK enough guidance to know where to start, what could be your next steps, and could end up saving you thousands of dollars. The conversation with my niece was a gigantic wake-up call that though I love her, have a sense of her strengths, and went to college myself, the world of occupations and college majors is outside of my expertise.

I’m so glad college knowledge is smack-dab in the middle of Krisit Steele’s expertise, and that she understands the unique needs of TCKs and wants to help you.

Instead of feeling overwhelmed, you really can help your TCK and have a plan. (And all the parents rejoiced!)

Thankfully, you can get the workshop today and have a plan for how to help prepare your TCK for college.

P.S. What questions do you have about how to prepare a TCK for college?
