Embark on a critical exploration of how individuals and students can successfully transition from high school to college, with Shellee Howard from College Ready guiding the way. You're promised a treasure trove of insights on early planning for college readiness, beginning as early as middle school — a strategic approach to choosing the ideal college environment, and the financial gymnastics of balancing savings and aid to sidestep debt. This episode is a navigational beacon for parents plotting their child's academic voyage and students setting sail toward their educational horizons.

Steering through the currents of educational transitions need not be a solo journey. Our conversation charts a course through the choppy waters of guiding children and teens, with an emphasis on the power of open-ended questions and the critical juncture of the summer before ninth grade. Particularly for those youngsters who shy away from future-talk, we outline how to weave these pivotal discussions into the fabric of daily life. As they paddle through the grades, we highlight the landmarks for preparing a robust college application and nurturing a thriving student ready to conquer their next academic chapter.

As the compass points towards college readiness and financial resources, we unveil the quest to help a million families send their children to dream colleges devoid of debt's shadow. Not only does this episode unpack how students can dazzle in the admissions arena, but it also casts a light on the treasure trove of scholarships—just last year, students snagged $23 million. Furthermore, we introduce empowering platforms like and, equipping parents and students with the maps and tools necessary to navigate the educational odyssey with confidence and community support.
