Post-secondary education brings countless benefits to a student’s personal, academic, and professional development. While it may seem like there is plenty of time between elementary or middle school and submitting college applications, starting the process early allows families to educate themselves on college planning, savings, and financial aid. The NHHEAF Network’s Center for College Planning (CCP) is dedicated to providing students and families with valuable information on all aspects of post-secondary preparation. Here is out list of offerings for K-8 families:

  • Early College Planning Guide: Designed for parents of students in grades K-8, the Early College Planning Guide covers saving, paying, and planning for college.
  • Early College Planning Presentation (PDF): This PDF of our Early College Planning Presentation walks families through the process of early college planning and what to expect as their child enters high school.
  • Calendar of Events: Throughout the year our counselors visit schools throughout the state. Check out our event calendar here to see when we will be near you!
  • Using the website: Our website offers extensive information on financial aid, career readiness, and college planning. Also check out our College Admission and Financial Aid Insiders. These guides describe the process of applying to college and applying for financial aid, respectively. The college admission and financial aid processes are fluid and policies, technologies, and best practices update regularly. To ensure students have the correct information, please attend a presentation, review our website, and set up a counseling appointment when the student is ready to apply to college in their junior or senior year of high school.
