My Dear daughter, I have hopes for you
I have hopes that you’ll do what I couldn’t, that you’ll
accomplish the dreams I haven’t yet
Oh, and in the words of Martin Luther King
I have a dream
I have a dream for you, dearest daughters
that you will walk down an aisle, and not one of marriage
but of a university
that you will be and do and see
the things I could not
the things I never did
We as parents play a critical role in helping their children navigate the college application process and access the resources and support needed to excel in college and beyond. The new website at HSF.net helps you to find information you need to guide your children through the application and enrollment process—and also to ensure that you have the financial resources needed to graduate. This is very important for those of you with older children. College planning is a daunting task for parents. We tend to always see our children as the tiny little babies that we gave birth to. Websites and recourses at HSF.net is great in giving us the tools we need to plan for for our child’s college education.
Did you know that Hispanics account for 19% of all college students, ages 18-24? That’s a major increase, up from 12% in 2008. What’s more, 69% of Hispanic graduates are now going directly to college after graduating high school, a rate that is higher than that of the general population.
But the surge in Hispanic college-bound students presents a greater need for more information about college and financial support. As all parents that have college bound students can attest, navigating the application process can be daunting.
We as parents are the support system that our kids need to get to and through college, but sometimes we need support and encouragement too. Find all that at: http://hsf.net/en/resources/parents/
