Moving From Graduation Season into Summer

If you have a high school or college senior, both you and your student are most likely focused on the finish line – graduation! Your student has worked hard to get here, it’s been a long time coming, and this last year has probably be especially trying for everyone.

First, there may still be a few weeks remaining of that all-important final year. Help your student stay focused and help them ride the many emotions they may be feeling. Be sure to attend to the details that may be necessary to wrap things up and prepare for that final event.

Second, enjoy the occasion. It will probably look different this year than you imagined a few years ago, but the milestone is just as momentous. Relax (easier said than done), smile a lot (even if it’s still behind a mask), and share in your student’s excitement (and maybe a little trepidation as well.)

Then, once all of the festivities are over, it’s time to change focus and begin to ease into summer and begin to anticipate what’s next.  It’s a time of transition and change for everyone – whether your student is leaving high school to head to college or the workforce, or whether they are heading to college. It’s time for the next step – for both your student and for you.

We’ve collected some of the articles on College Parent Central that may help answer some of your questions and begin to think about next steps.  Use them to help both you and your student be ready.

And – Congratulations!
