A Roadmap to Success
"Dr. Ellis has a twenty-year track record of success in the high school, summer program, and college placement arenas, and has put that expertise into this book. This book is written in a straightforward manner and is extremely informative. As the father of three high school students, I started the high school and college planning process before reading this book. By giving detailed monthly plans for each year of high school, this book provides an organized roadmap and specific steps that will save me time and money moving forward. Dr. Ellis identifies potential pitfalls, including the “Sophomore Slump” and plans to avoid overcome setbacks. I am grateful that she has shared her skills and talents with my family through this book and believe that her wisdom will help your family as well."
If You Want To Help You Child Prepare College, You Need This Book!
"Dr. Ellis does a wonderful job providing an easy-to-follow guide for the college preparation and application process. I love that she starts BEFORE high school to help parents think about what they need to do to look at the entire high school journey and not just junior and senior year. She is thorough, but in a way that doesn't overwhelm you. You know that she's going to cover all the important topics so you can just focus on each chapter as she presents it, without getting anxious about what's next. It feels like she is right there consulting with you. The checklists in the book are great. Finally, instead of just creating a dry, step-by-step guide, Dr. Ellis shares her own story as a mom of 3 who has already gone through this process multiple times. That was really reassuring. I highly recommend this book to middle and high school parents who want to plan for college, not stress themselves or their student out, and know they need an expert to help them. This is the book for you!"
