Vail, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado – Parents and high school students are invited to a free panel discussion covering education options after high school, including both vocational and college education.

The Parents You Matter Dinner and Dialogue series continues with guidance and tips on planning for your child’s future education Tuesday at the Eagle Public Library. A buffet-style dinner from Qdoba will be provided at 6 p.m. followed by speakers and discussion.

After the 12th grade, a wide variety of options exist for a young person who wants to pursue more education and training. How can parents help their child navigate this process? What online resources exist for studying for tests, applying for school, and obtaining financial aid?

A panel of local professionals will discuss the education options after high school and timelines for various application steps. So that students and parents can better navigate online resources for information, applications, and financial aid options, parents will be guided through helpful technical, community college and four-year college websites. Free resources for studying for the SAT and ACT will be covered. The session will assist parents and students who are feeling overwhelmed by the post-secondary school admission and financial aid process.

Parents and students are welcome to come with their own questions and needs to be addressed by the panelists. This is a bilingual event and a free buffet-style dinner will be provided by Qdoba.
