Let's Talk College, Parent to Parent 

Updated Jan 2024



This is a place to find tips and advice from parents who have been where you are and have successfully assisted their student through the college process. Consider this as a supplement to thRHS counseling center’s webpage and the advice of your school counselor.


Click on the links to the left or below for tips and advice by class. Along with interesting and important information and links to helpful websites, we also have added a few tips and tricks indicated by tiger paws . These pages are only for PTSA members.  If you would like to join, please click here.  


We also offer an annual parent-to-parent panel in the fall about the college search and admissions process from RHS parents who have been through it. Gain insight, learn tips and ask questions. Our panel will talk to their varied experiences on the college process (we try to cover traditional, athletic, arts, gap paths) and how to survive it. The program is geared toward parents of sophomores and juniors, but all Ridgefield High School parents are welcome to attend! Keep checking our home page and the weekly PTSA email, which will post panel details as it becomes available.


We hope you find some helpful tips and advice,









We're here to support you!
