"I just want to know what to do"

anonymous parent

Many parents just want a structured plan that details exactly what their teenager should be doing to complete their college admission and scholarship applications. We have it. It’s called the “4-Week Application Plan.” This guide provides parents with step-by-step instructions for a four-week period at the beginning of senior year.

The 4-week Application Plan is the latest College Prep MAP.  Four weekly plans teach parents exactly how to help their rising senior complete these 12 college planning activities at the beginning of the senior year.

Parents use a simple 3-step system of Review, Discuss and Monitor to guide their teenager through the program. Here’s how parents use the Review, Discuss, and Monitor system.

Using The College Prep MAP

Step 1 - Review

Read the weekly activity plan on Sunday and learn what will be accomplished. Each weekly plan includes a set of “Tasks” and specific instructions for completing all activities. The structure and organization of each weekly plan is designed to help your teen stay focused and get the activities completed.

Step 2 - Discuss

Discuss the weekly plan with your teenager and make sure the activities are clear. Also, make sure that your teenager has the time and resources to complete all activities. Lastly, let your teenager know that you’ll be checking that the activities have been completed on Saturday.

Step 3 - Monitor

Track your teenager's progress at the end of every week. The work your teenager has completed toward their “Weekly Goals” makes it easy to monitor their progress. Talking with your teen about what they’ve accomplished during the week will help them stay on-track and keep you informed.
