Scheduled to be held at 7PM on Monday, March 12th at Swampscott Public Library,
Tuesday, March 13th at the Abbott Public Library in Marblehead and on
Thursday, March 15th at the Salem Police Department
Jim Femia, a Certified College Planning Specialist (CCPS) with the National Institute of Certified College Planners (NICCP) will be conducting a series of FREE educational workshops to parents of local area high school students interested in learning more about the college admissions process and how to access financial aid at the Swampscott Public Library on Monday evening, March 12th, and at the Abbott Public Library on Tuesday evening, March 13th and at the Salem Police Department on Thursday, March 15th. All of these workshops are scheduled to begin at 7PM and reservations are required.
Femia has recently joined CollegeBound Coaching as a Principal and as a Financial Aid Consultant. CollegeBound Coaching is a North Shore consulting firm which provides college preparation and admissions services based upon a new and innovative “student life coaching” methodology. CollegeBound Coaching has also recently launched a new and innovative, personalized college visit service called Campus Connections. CollegeBound Coaching and Campus Connections are currently hiring and training college students on campuses across the country to assist its professional staff in working with high school students and their families.
“I am excited to be working with CollegeBound Coaching so as to be able to deliver the highest level of college preparation and admissions services,” said Femia. “Having a daughter in college myself and a son who will soon be engaging in the college admissions process, I am keenly aware of the many challenges and stresses which other parents are facing. Through our network of qualified, professional partners and carefully selected, well-trained college students, we are able to provide real solutions to meet the specific needs of these families.”
Femia will address a number of compelling areas which are likely to be of significant interest to parents with children in high school who are going to be applying to college. “Many families inaccurately believe that they are ineligible for financial aid,” Femia explained, “whereas others, many of them middle class and upper middle-class, pay close to nothing for their children’s college educations. I am going to explain how to position your eligibility status, and how best to position your children so as to take advantage of the many opportunities for financial aid which exist at colleges and universities across the country.”
