College Preparation and Leadership Development
Preparing for college starts before your senior year in high school. The earlier you start the better equipped you will be for success. TPF will help guide you through high school and get you ready for the college admission process. The College Preparation team assists with college searches, college selection and interviews, college entrance exams, college application packets, educational resumes, scholarship searches and essay development, and FAFSA completion. Most college preparation services are provided free of charge.
The Leadership Development Conference is a three day conference for juniors and seniors offered in the summer. Through interactive workshops, attendees will be challenged and encouraged to become active leaders in their community, school, and at home. For more information contact April Day.
