Counselors' Corner

The Counselors' Corner is a series of
articles that are written by the guidance department to keep our families informed about a variety of things that are important to your daughters. Since we work with all of our students, the entire department is responsible for contributing articles from time to time. We try to keep our articles brief and timely. These articles also appear in the weekly Tiger Tracks sent to parents each Friday.

Strategies for Financing College

Nathan Birney, a financial advisor with Ameriprise Financial Advisors, will conduct a seminar for the SAA and SJ parent communities on Wednesday, September 9th at 6:30 pm in the Fleming Room located across from the counseling suite in the Clay Center for Sciences and Academic Services.  This informative session will help you understand financial aid calculations, analyze college costs, evaluate your savings and investment vehicles, and explore a variety of tax implications.  This seminar is open to all our parents regardless of the grade level of your daughter.  Our counseling departments have found that planning early for the cost of a college education allows families to position themselves more effectively.  We hope that you can join us for this presentation.
