AMEDF SCHOLARS METHODOLOGY™: Everything You Need to Better Prepare for College
College attrition in the US has reached alarming levels with more than 80% of 9th graders failing to achieve college graduation in a reasonable timeframe. Even less are actually employed in their field of study, with more than one in four recent college graduates working in jobs that do not even require a college degree!
The good news is there are actions you can take while your student is still in high school to dramatically improve the odds of achieving college success. The American Education Foundation has incorporated this into the “AMEDF Scholars Methodology™,” a comprehensive program that provides everything needed to help families better prepare for college.
The AMEDF Scholars Methodology™ incorporates multiple formats including workshops, self-study, internet-based research, and one-on-one advisement to accommodate a wide range of learning style preferences. The methodology aims to improve college readiness through a focus on academic preparation, career preparation, and financial preparation. Families learn how to identify colleges that are uniquely suited to the student’s academic, career, and the family's financial profile to maximize probability of college success.
All components of the AMEDF Scholars Methodology™ are subsidized from 70% to 100% based on a participant’s income, and provide affordable alternatives to commercial services. Families seeking resources to better prepare for college can enroll in any or all of the methodology components suitable for their needs.
