Parents can help

We know the importance of parents and families in supporting students’ decisions around post-secondary. Here are helpful links to specific information on our website for parents to explore, so they can help their student use our website and resources for planning and applications.

We work with school districts to host Parents as Education and Career Coaches (PECC) virtual workshops, which provide information and guidance to parents on how best to support their student. For more information, please email us at
