Jumpstart 2015 Workshop

Jumpstart Flyer** I AM EXTENDING THE College Workshop DEADLINE TO JUNE 9TH **

Since there is so much interest from other states, I have opened up enrollment to include everyone, not just WV students.

JUMPSTART YOUR COLLEGE SUCCESS is an intensive two week seminar, that will help your student be ready for the entirety of the college process.

Students will complete a mock ACT, take the Strong Career Interest Inventory, create a best fit college and scholarship list, write, revise and edit a college essay, learn about the importance of financial literacy, and go on four college tours.  Dianne Keilholtz, NCC, IEC, the organizer and facilitator of this event, is a retired high school guidance counselor, with over 30 years’ experience in college admissions.

If interested in attending this very worthwhile program, students must complete an application (Click Here To Print) and mail with an unofficial transcript and a check for $200 (payable to Launching College Success) mailed to:  Director of Development, Martinsburg Public Library, 101 W. King St, Martinsburg, WV 25401.

Concerned about the approaching deadline, just give me a call to register!
