Collegebound: From Freshman Year to Freshman Year is a comprehensive, interactive guide to aid students on their path from their freshman year of high school to their freshman year of college.
It differs from other books by explaining not only what needs to be done in high school to increase the chances of college acceptance but also how to accomplish this goal and why it is important.
As a high school counselor, I work with students daily who have the desire to attend college but often lack the knowledge to achieve this goal. As the parent of a college student, I experience the joy that comes when the tools outlined in Collegebound are implemented with success. These two factors were my motivation to create this book for high school students.
