  • FREE College Financial Planning Workshop

    MSTC is hosting a FREE College Financial Planning Workshop on Thursday, October 24th from 6:00 – 7:00 in the PLD library. This is our second year hosting the event and it has been very well received. During this one hour session, Mr. Howard, of SeaCure Advisors, will explain the ins and outs of paying for college. There are a lot of things that you can be doing now that can have an impact on the amount you will have to pay when your student is ready to attend.

    There is no cost and no obligation when you attend, but you can sign up for an additional free one hour private session to look at how some of the things that are discussed apply directly to your family’s financial situation.

    This session is designed mainly for freshmen thru sophomore families, but anyone is welcome to attend. Feel free to invite other families (even if they aren’t MSTC or Dunbar) that you think could benefit from this information. Friends of MSTC will receive $25 for each family that attends on October 24th.

    You must RSVP by following

    Please see the attached flyer for more information.
