Family Learning Series College Admissions Expert, Paul Kanarek; LCHS Alumni Panel

How do you combine a sane college admissions process with great outcomes?

We’ve asked Mr. Paul Kanarek (Princeton Review, Collegewise), to return to La Canada to show how this is highly achievable for our families. His topics will include:

  • creating maximum flexibility around your admissions and paying for college choices
  • redefining what constitutes a great college
  • directly addressing the more painful myths about getting into university
  • helping you formulate the smartest way to approach colleges that have early admissions programs

Mr. Kanarek is well known for addressing each of these issues in a relatable, joyful way. We promise you will leave this evening knowing more and worrying less. A panel of LCHS Alumni will join us for part of the evening to share their experiences and respond to questions.
