We understand that parents/guardians of programme participants may not have experience of the US admissions process, so we aim to provide support and guidance from the beginning of the programme:
Parent/Guardians Information Session at the April residential
If your child is selected for the programme, we will also invite parents to attend a parent information session at the April residential, to give more information on the programme, US university admissions and your role in this process.
We understand not all parents will be able to attend the session, so we will provide a printed pack of information for each family.
Parent Information Session Webinar
We will host a live online parent information session webinar in late Spring to give more information on the programme, US university admissions and your role in this process. There will be a Q&A with programme staff as part of this, and the webinar recording will be sent out to all parents.
More information will be provided if your child is selected for the programme. This includes in-depth information on the one week visit to the US, as well as US admissions and financial aid processes if your child chooses to apply to US universities in the autumn.
Thank you for providing our son with the most amazing trip. As I saw him come through arrivals at Heathrow after the US week I was overwhelmed with the happiness on his face as well as the amazing camaraderie amongst his fellow peers. You guys really, really have made his dream a reality. Your hard work, dedication and continued support is just amazing, you all really do make a difference to these young adults.
