Payson High School on Feb. 16 will host a free, one-hour presentation on financing a college education.
The 7 p.m. session in the high school auditorium titled, “Ultimate Money Skills: College Funding” is aimed at parents of high school students by Making It Count, an educational service provided for parents and students by Bank of America.
The program is intended to help parents understand how the college financing process works, including options available to develop a college funding strategy, how to plan for and manage all college costs and different types of financial aid available. Parents will learn how to send their child to college without risking their financial future.
“A student’s entry into higher education after high school is a key transitional period for both students and parents alike,” said JR Cifani, vice president and general manager of Making It Count.
More information about the presentation can be found online at www.MakingItCount.com.
