Parents have called this the most informative and useful college prep workshop they have ever attended. The information presented provides a clear strategy for parents to help their students define a career direction and understand affordable college credit options (which can start in middle school!).
Earn a Debt-Free College Degree
This workshop will help you learn how to translate your student’s high school studies into college credit for under $100. Credit-by-exam is a widely accepted alternative to earning credit for introductory college courses, and is available to students at any age. Financial Aid, Scholarships, College Costs, PSEO, and the MnTC are other resources you need to know about to develop a completion plan! Gaining a new-found sense of motivation for their current studies, students can save thousands of dollars in college tuition.
7 Steps to Choosing a Career
Choosing a career path is a difficult and sometimes overwhelming decision. Instead of leaving it to chance, be intentional by including career exploration early in your students’ high school years. Students who define their purpose and pathway are more likely to find joy and success in their future goals. This seminar provides parents with the steps and resources needed to be their students’ career coach.

Cheri Frame founded Credits Before College to positively impact families seeking to avoid college debt. Her own students graduated college debt-free, not from receiving financial aid or scholarships, but from utilizing opportunities available to all students starting when they were in middle school. The information was not easy to gather! Bring your teens and together learn how you can create a plan the offers opportunities beyond the traditional debt 7 out of 10 college students accumulate.

What You Have to Say … “Thank you for not keeping this to yourself and sharing. I am so excited I could hardly sleep last night. I’ll be sharing what you do with a lot of people. I have already started this morning.” ~ Julie KDetails2
“We can’t stress enough the value of this workshop for parents and students entering grade 6 to college age. If you have heard Cheri speak before at MACHE, that one-hour workshop is only a GLIMPSE into earning college credits (as early as 7th grade). You truly NEED to hear this complete workshop which includes direction on where start! You may think your student is not ready, not mature enough, or you don’t understand the big picture and it’s all too overwhelming, but this is the first step in the right direction to getting what we consider the best understanding of the educational options available. Make the effort to come and bring your student and spouse – this is not something you can relay to them in 15 minutes – it is essential information that could very well change the course of your student’s educational life (NOT kidding!). Sign up today to guarantee yourself a highly valuable information packet. Feel free to pass this information onto your friends with students of this age – public, private, charter and homeschoolers. Many parents/students have seen this workshop TWICE to truly engage the valuable information.” ~ Maria Matthys, Kellee Metz & Marie Stupeck ~ administrators of a local homeschool co-op Truth Academy
I went to a Credits Before College seminar and it was hands-down the best information I have ever heard on the topic. Three hours packed with information that the speaker (also a homeschooler) had taken a couple of years to research. I have been recommending it to everyone I know (it is for non-homeschoolers as well, basically anyone whose kid might be going to college). I am a secular homeschooler and the speaker comes from a Christain homeschooling background, but this workshop is very inclusive and provides information that all approaches to homeschooling (and non-homeschoolers) can use. I am usually skeptical of seminars as I find that most can be done in half the time and there is a lot of fluff, but every minute was worth it with this one! I now have a game-plan for both of my kids – even though each is really different from the other. And I walked away with tons of resources to help me. Best $25 I’ve spent in a long time. I also highly recommend bringing your middle school/high school aged children as they should hear it for themselves since it is their education/future. She recommends that teens come so that they are on board. Good luck! ~ Jess
