Let's Get Ready for College


The 2009 "Let's Get Ready for College" event has not yet been scheduled. However, it is anticipated that High School Juniors (and possibly their parents) will be included along with the High School Seniors for the track that covers Finding the Right College for You, How to Score Well on the ACT, How to Find and Get Scholarships, and How to Make Your Senior Year Count for God. This is in addition to the College-Bound track with sessions like those listed below in the section with audio from previous years.
