What Every College Bound Student Should Know
Every student wants their transcript for
college to set them apart...especially
when looking for a scholarship
Colleges and scholarship boards are looking for those dynamic students who are well rounded, but also students who show them that "something special." In fact, Kathe Lee, world-renowned author, teacher, advisor, homeschool mom, and consultant to hundreds of college and private home schools across the globe, explains it best. She describes 3 things that help with college planning and how to build a service resume during the summer months (https://kathelee.com/pages/best-use-of-summer). She recommends that summer is the time to focus on leadership, competition, and service to others. With these things in place, colleges will be more apt to pay closer attention to your students' application and be more inclined to offer a scholarship.
Start A Business!!
When discussing leadership, the first thing Kathe Lee recommends is Starting A Business!! Starting a business shows the student's strong leadership qualities and their initiative. Throwing a college student into a business without prior knowledge of how it all works can be very harmful...this is where The Kingdom Code comes in. This program sets your elementary and middle school student up for high school readiness, which in turn makes them college prepped. It gives them foundational skills to build a business at a young age that will carry on well beyond high school and college. College and scholarship boards looking for leaders often find this quality in students who have started and built businesses.
