college research

Making a list of “just right” colleges to apply to can be overwhelming. Have you ever gotten lost on the internet trying to research schools? Don’t waste time wandering the internet looking for college info. Let Beth Probst, founder and CEO of At The Core, share tips with you and your student in this valuable training demonstration.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Parents and Students – Grade 8-12

During our program, you will learn:

  • How do you make a college list?
  • What are the selection criteria you need to be thinking about?
  • How does your choice of major impact your search?
  • How can you keep your family’s budget in mind when doing the search?
  • Tips for successful college visits whether in person or virtually.

In this one-of-a-kind webinar, Beth will walk you through her four favorite online tools, how and when to use them, and why she chose each one. We’ll also give you a heads up on which sites are a waste of your time.

What do parents have to say about our college research webinar?

We learned about many online tools that we did not know about. We were feeling overwhelmed on how to research colleges- there are so many! Now, with what we learned we have a plan and feel like we know what we need to do and how to do it!” –10th grade parent

This program was helpful because it “…contained a ton of useful information with links to use in the future. Especially appreciated seeing how to use the links as well.” –11th grade parent

Families will want to consider registering for our additional deep dive webinars about college planning, testing, junior year, careers & majors, and paying for college for more information. Visit Upcoming Webinars for the complete list.

Please note that not all questions may be answered during the program due to time constraints. Families with very specific student or situation questions will be better served by our Private Consultation service which can be in-person in Central Ohio if a family chooses or online nationwide.
