*A Press Release from JSerra Catholic High School

JSerra Catholic High School is offering the Orange County community a free opportunity to have their questions answered about when to start looking into colleges for their children.

College guidance mentor Debbie Morgan will moderate a workshop called “Surviving and Thriving in High School.” The event is scheduled for Aug. 25 at the JSerra Pavilion at JSerra Catholic High School. It begins at 6:30 p.m.

“It is never too early to begin the process of thoughtful preparation – academically and personally,” Morgan said. “It is becoming more imperative for students with the hope, dream and goal of one day attending college to become well acquainted with what will be expected of them.”

“Debbie offers important tips on how to prepare for the future during these uncertain times. We hope parents take advantage of this one-time opportunity to hear from one of the region’s foremost education experts,” said Frank Talarico, JSerra President.

While the presentation is geared toward families with middle school and high school-age students, it offers information of value to all parents looking for tips about how to improve their children’s educational opportunities, Morgan said.

Morgan’s professional background includes serving as Capistrano Unified School District’s director of college guidance services from 1998 to 2007. She has an English degree from the University of Southern California.
