College Knowledge


As exciting as it is to graduate from high school, the unknown that college brings can be overwhelming. You may find yourself asking: How do I make new friends? How do I deal with the change, manage my stress, relationships, both new and old, plus budget my time and money? We know, it’s a lot and that is only part of it.  How does the college experience you want align with staying safe and making informed decisions?

Would you like to hang with peers while you prepare for this transition, interacting and learning how to manage everything impacted by this next step, including setting healthier habits to last you through adulthood? College Knowledge is prepared with you in mind.  We will break down all things needed for you to create your best college experience. This is done using a hands-on interactive process so you can apply and use the content now. We designed a program that provides resources for life, highlighting your next step, whether it’s at a school big or small, near or far, and anything in between. We want to give you the ability to make informed decisions to get the most out of your college career.


Is my senior ready for college? This is a question most parents ask themselves as spring semester begins the last year of high school. The answer may surprise you. The statistics are alarming and show students struggle with anxiety, overwhelm, and depression among other challenges. AND that was before a pandemic!

We live in an environment that prepares our children academically for college, but academics are just a piece of the college experience. What else can we do to encourage their growth and preparedness in other areas like emotional well-being, healthy habits, communication, and safety? We want students to navigate college successfully, safely, and have a fulfilling experience. As a parent you want to have confidence that you have fully equipped them to navigate and succeed in this next step; it is a big emotional and financial investment.

Take the assessment below to see if your senior is showing signs of being ready to go?

Do you wake your senior up to go to school?    yes   no

Do you remind your senior of due dates and assignments?    yes   no

Did you manage your senior’s college application process?    yes   no

Does your senior ask regularly for additional funds?    yes   no

Does your senior become overwhelmed when things get hectic?    yes   no

Does your senior need help to get motivated?    yes   no

Does your senior get sidetracked and need direction?    yes   no

Do you set your senior’s appointments (doctor, dentist, senior pictures)?    yes   no

Do you go to all of your senior’s appointments with them?    yes   no

Are you, as the parent, the main problem solver for your senior?    yes   no

There’s a reason 30% of college freshmen drop out after their first year. If you answered yes to 4 or more of the questions above, a significant amount of communication needs to happen to properly prepare your senior. A tough first semester filled with stress and self-doubt can be hard to bounce back from. At Brain Basics, we partnered with Baird Counseling, to create this workshop, College Knowledge. College Knowledge equips young adults with life skills to manage change, stress, relationships, time, and money with confidence, moving into this next phase, and life for that matter, as they move forward.
