College Fit Resources

On March 3, Duchesne hosted Challenge Success for a parent education event titled “A Well-Balanced Perspective on College Fit: What Matters, What Doesn't, and What to Do about it.”  Jen Coté, our Challenge Success Coach, shared current research and practical strategies that support a balanced approach to the college process.
