Many families begin to think about college before high school even begins. What major do you want to study? Should you take the SAT or ACT? What extracurricular activities will show your leadership skills to make you more desirable to a specific school? All of these things are important when considering the right academic fit for a student. But how do you measure the right emotional fit at a college or university? How do you make sure that a grieving student will be prepared for the transition to college? How do you know if a particular school will have enough supports in place to meet the needs of a grieving student?
