From Motivation Monday at ForwarDirections Facebook Page:

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Being willing is not enough; we must do.”

-Leonardo da Vinci

MoneyMakesWorldGoRound“Money makes the world go ‘round…” You probably have heard that saying. It’s even been adapted as a song in a musical (Cabaret, 1966). What can YOU do to get more money for college? You CAN afford college; just keep reading!

This year’s ForwarDirections Seniors have been offered more than $1,000,000 in “free money” (scholarships and grants) for college!
  • We can help YOU do the same!  Sign up here to get more information.

How much does it cost to go to college? According to this Time Magazine article, “The official price of attendance published by some of the top public universities topped $32,000 a year in 2014, and a few top private schools were approaching the $65,000-a-year threshold.” But don’t be discouraged! The team at ForwarDirections can help you figure out how to proceed, no matter how daunting those numbers may seem.

College.MoneyWhat are some of the costs of paying college that you may not have considered?

Every time you sign up to take a college entrance exam (SAT or ACT), that costs money—approximately $50 each time. Every time you submit an application to a college, that costs money—approximately $50 for each application. It makes sense, then, to get help about when and how often you need to take those tests and exactly what college you should apply to. The team at ForwarDirections can help you figure out how to proceed, no matter how many questions you may have.

Our mission is to empower students to be college and/or career ready by helping them discover their passions and bring their future into focus.
