college-savings2Save the date! Parents of students of all ages, join us for College Planning 101 on Monday, November 6, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. WA alumni, Philip Piedt ’07 of Benchmark Financial and John Novoa ’02 of Thrivent Financial, will be sharing strategies for saving and preparing for higher education. Early preparation is key, so we encourage parents of preschoolers through seniors to attend. As a college preparatory school, we are excited to offer this event presented by our alumni who want to give back to their alma mater which laid a foundation for the success they experience today.
