April 1. April Fool. The ideal day to start a new, crazy adventure.
Thirteen years ago, on April 1, 2009, College Parent Central was born. It felt right. Launch something that seems as though it might be a good idea and see what happens. Who knows?
Now, on April 1, 2022, we’re proud to say that we still think it’s a good idea and we’re still here. Still growing. Still finding new and interesting ways to reach out to parents. Still providing information and support.
We’re celebrating our birthday!
When we began College Parent Central thirteen years ago, there wasn’t much of anything available to help college parents understand their role and how to support their student. There were a few books out there and a very few articles online. In the years since, we’ve been joined in this space by many websites, organizations and a host of books for parents and students. College parents matter and knowing how best to help your student can make a difference.
