9780452289529: What High Schools Don't Tell You (And Other Parents Don't Want You toKnow): Create a Long-Term Plan for Your 7th to 10th Grader for Getting into the Top Col leges

From the author of What Colleges Don’t Tell You, a plan to help parents of middle and early high school students prepare their kids for the best colleges

In order to succeed in the fiercely competitive college admissions game, you need a game plan—and you have to start young. In this empowering guide, Elizabeth Wissner- Gross, a nationally sought-after college “packager,” helps parents of seventh to tenth graders create a long-term plan that, come senior year, will allow their kids to virtually write their own ticket into their choice of schools.

Parents should start by helping their kids identify their academic passions, then design a four-year strategy based on those interests. The book details hundreds of opportunities available to make kids stand out that most high school guidance counselors and teachers simply don’t know about or don’t think to share. This indispensable guide should be required reading for any parent whose child dreams of attending one of the country’s top colleges.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Wissner-Gross, trained as a journalist, has for ten years succeeded in helping students, including her own children, gain admission offers to Harvard, Princeton, Yale, MIT, and other competitive colleges.

From Booklist:

Wissner-Gross, author of What Colleges Don't Tell You (2006), follows up with a book aimed at the grade-school years, well before the college search starts. She draws on interviews with teachers, college admissions officers, and parents of nationally recognized high-school students to offer practical advice on how parents can begin in the eighth grade to prepare their children for a high-school career that will lead to admission into the best colleges. Part 1 focuses on the college admissions process and urges parents and students to develop a game plan, including making strategic use of summers and designing strong four-year academic programs to boost the chances of admission into the most desirable colleges and universities. Part 2 focuses on the best opportunities for children in a variety of areas, including math, science, the arts, the humanities, journalism, business, and government. Wissner-Gross offers more than 300 suggestions to best position students for college admissions. A detailed appendix offers possible paths based on a child's area of interest or passion. Parents will find this an enormously helpful resource. Bush, Vanessa
