Free educational plans offered by SOESC


The Southern Ohio Educational Service Center is offering all high school and middle school students free in-person and virtual services to help plan for their future.

A $6,850 value, the Journey College Planning (JCP) four-session series walks students and families through post-high school planning, according to a news release. Whether you are looking for a traditional college education or a professional education, JCP will assist you in the process of identifying, applying, and paying for education opportunities.

Students and families will be provided opportunities to ask questions and work one-on-one at sessions, as well as utilize JCP as a resource when planning.

These sessions will have information that is valuable for families with students grades 8-12. In each session, JCP will cover college planning topics with the group as a whole. There will be work for families to complete between each session, with opportunities to meet with a JCP consultant one-to-one in between sessions. Juniors will especially benefit from one-to-one meeting opportunities.

The goal of these sessions is to help you make a better financial choice when choosing an educational opportunity. One that is affordable and offers a career when completed.

There will also be a recording made of the virtual session if you are unable to attend either the virtual or in-person. Choose a sign-up option for each of the four sessions.
