11th grade Parent Peer Group- Oct. 13, 2016

Join us for the first 11th grade Parent Peer Group meeting where the focus will be on financial aid. The cost of a college education is higher than ever. How will you afford this expense? What if your children attend elite or out-of-state schools? What if they don’t graduate in four years? The costs can be monumental. This workshop will teach you how to send your children to the college of their dreams without bankrupting your retirement nest egg. You’ll discover strategies that may enable to you to qualify for financial aid, sources for scholarships, and strategies for maximizing your wealth and minimizing your tax exposure, giving you greater cash flow for funding a college education. Please join the PTA and especially junior parents on October 13 @ 7:30 -8:30 pm. This is information you can’t afford to miss! To RSVP please: Click Here or visit our website, www.thecollegefundingcoach.org and look for upcoming classes in your area.
