Putting it All Together - Deadlines and Timetables
If you are a high school student, or a parent of one, preparing for college can be
daunting. When should a student start preparing for the ACT or SAT? When is the best
time to take those tests? Should they take the PSAT? When should they start applying
for scholarships? What is the best way to find the right school? What deadlines should
a student be aware of regarding the FAFSA, College Applications, Early Decision, and
Financial Aid? A student or parent can spend a long time researching to find answers
to these questions - or even to determine what questions they should ask! Peterson’s
website provides detailed informational articles that can help you navigate this process
without getting lost, and without missing an important deadline.
Our goal is to be a trusted resource for students at every step of their college experience.
From preparing for college to dorm life, we provide guidance and advice that can help
students take some of the trepidation out of the whole process, enabling students to
focus on their academics and on enjoying their college life. We firmly believe that our job
is to help prepare the next generation of leaders. Leaders who are prepared to take the
world’s challenges head on with courage, integrity, and ethical behavior.
