Graduation Time

Chances are you know someone who is graduating in the coming weeks.  A good time to think about your own planning for higher education.  Meet with your school counselor to map out a plan of what you need to do now to get started - things like knowing which classes to take, when to apply for scholarships and grants and the type of school you want to go to.  It has been estimated that a year of college costs about $30K.  Start a plan.  Go Team!  Brett Ellen, The Kids Finance Coach
