Planning for Success in High School and Beyond
At The Core has crafted a presentation of tips and tools to share with middle school parents (especially 8th graders/rising high school freshmen) to help you prepare your student for high school and the road ahead.
This presentation encourages parents to consider their student’s future high school experience as they enter high school, and look ahead to life after high school–whether it is college or career.
We’ll talk about:
This session is geared for parents. Our kids get a lot of info about this transition through the school, and this session is intended to support parents. Some kids WILL come, and that is perfectly fine too!

We created this presentation for 8th grade parents (and rising high school freshmen in the summer months). We find that students are well-supported by their school districts, but PARENTS need some support too! If you have to or want to bring a student, feel free to do so.
This presentation encourages parents to consider their student’s future high school experience as they enter high school. We’ll talk about what you can expect each year, choosing courses, the value of pre-planning, extracurriculars, and an overview of all the options available (like honors classes, AP classes, dual enrollment, etc.) Also, we’ll start to dig into college prep considerations and give you some foundational knowledge about how it works (applications, ACT/SAT testing, etc.)
LOL, right? We get it! We are busy parents too, and time is precious. Here are a few quotes from our sessions last year:
“Looking Ahead will allow us to answer questions for our child as well as equip us to assist them in making decisions about high school scheduling and college prep.”
“Looking Ahead gave me a much better understanding of what to expect.”
“It will help me survive the transition to high school!”
“…a lot of information but it was good to start hearing it. I wish I could come every couple of weeks.”
Some middle schools offer parent programming with information about their student’s high school course selection choices. Our program goes beyond that information. We suggest you attend both!
COVID-19 notice: At this time, we have suspended our in person Tips for the College-Bound program. We have substituted a series of webinars on various topics that you can read about here.
Tips for the College-Bound is vital for families as the student gets a little bit older. Like Looking Ahead, it covers high school topics, but the focus is more on the college search and application process. Information about the financial aspects of paying for college is also included in the Tips presentation–certainly a topic to tackle sooner rather than later. Looking Ahead is a prequel to Tips, so you’ll be ready to attend Tips after joining us for Looking Ahead. When you are ready, we will see you at Tips! (Click to see our current list of events.)
No. We created this program because parents of 8th graders CRAVE information to help their student prepare for high school. We are always happy to share more about At The Core, but these free presentations are built simply to give parents what they need, not a yucky sales pitch.
You’ll be the first to hear about upcoming sessions.
