At Inceptia, the heart of our nonprofit mission is to arm you with the knowledge necessary to make informed financial decisions – and that includes helping high school students navigate the college planning process.

As a high school junior or senior, you and your families have some pretty big choices to make over the next year or two. Because these choices can make a big impact on your financial future, we created a guide to help you and all of the people who make a difference in your life every day: parents, family members, counselors, teachers, and every other mentor and educator that is committed to your success as a student. We have teamed up with the personal finance site NerdWallet to release our first edition of “Great Advice for Parents.” This free eGuide offers timely advice on what you and your families should know leading up to and during the college enrollment process, as well as steps you can take now to become financially prepared. Here’s a sneak peek at just some of what you’ll find in this eGuide.

  • Picking the right college to avoid student debt
  • Financial Aid secrets
  • 8 Things High School Grads Need to Do Before Leaving College

If you want to use this as your guidebook, go for it! We want you and your family to feel confident as you transition into a college student with a solid foundation on the ins and outs of all things finance. Whether tackling budget development or discussing ways to avoid student debt – we’ve got you covered.
