High school offers so many extracurricular activities, like sports, music, and theater just to name a few. Plus, all the sports clubs that you can pay for. And, if you are lucky enough to have professional performing arts groups in your area, they more than likely offer opportunities for your children to begin a professional track.
But what is too much? Will paying for all these extra sports clubs and performing arts classes really help your student get scholarship awards? Or are we just playing to our fears, the "fear of missing out."
During each episode, Aaron Greene, Founder and CEO at College Liftoff, and his staff of counselors help students and families reduce the cost of higher education, navigate the application process, and make well-rounded decisions by evaluating the modern metrics of education.
College Liftoff emerged from Aaron’s desire to help students learn to treat education like an investment, accounting for the career, academic, and financial factors that shape this decision. He has also forged a debt control calculation to set student loan debt limits for each student. College Liftoff opened its first office in Columbus, Ohio in May 2009.
