TCP College Prep Receives 2016 Best of Southlake Award
Southlake Award Program Honors the Achievement
SOUTHLAKE May 18, 2016 -- TCP College Prep has been selected for the 2016 Best of Southlake Award in the Education category by the Southlake Award Program.
Each year, the Southlake Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Southlake area a great place to live, work and play.
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2016 Southlake Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Southlake Award Program and data provided by third parties.

Indispensable Marketing

Here’s a neat fact to start your day: Small businesses say good-ole' word-of-mouth remains the most effective marketing tactic, according to a recent report from Infusionsoft.
This report reinforced something that I’ve been noticing more and more, that is customer referrals is an essential element of the marketing mix and the real challenge now is to figure out how to be more referrable.

Definitely, if a small company delivers an excellent service at an affordable price then the consumer is more likely to make a personal referral. Who wouldn't want to share the great deal with close friends and family?
62% of small businesses surveyed cite word-of-mouth/customer referrals as a top 3 marketing tactic, by far the highest endorsement level of any tactic.
Once you understand the importance of building a way to become more marketable, things get a whole lot easier. 

Perfect 36

Perfect 36 in ACT Math by Carroll Sophomore!!

Timarron College Prep is proud to announce July's Student of the Month, Ryan Stalder, who achieved a rare perfect 36 in the ACT Math section. Well done, Ryan! Out of 2100 TCP students, he is the first to achieve this goal. It is such a rare accomplishment because it is possible to earn a 36 composite without scoring perfectly in math. Ryan's mom, Gina, says "We are very proud of Ryan for his hard work. We can't wait to see what the future holds for him!" Since Ryan will be a Junior next year, it will not be until next summer that he plans to apply to a variety of schools that will appreciate his talents, including A&M, UT Austin, and Rice, each of which rank in the top 12 schools in the nation for Engineering. Serious about his future career choice, Ryan just finished an engineering internship with High Value Signs & Studio. Ryan has already completed the first and second year engineering courses, as well as project management at Carroll High School. This coming year he plans to take Robotics and AP Computer Science to continue his engineering curriculum. For fun, he plays Ultimate Frisbee and is going to join the Robotics team. "I appreciate all the help that Timarron College Prep has given me. The extra work definitely paid off and helped me achieve a great score on Math!"

Dean Scholarship - TCU Honors

Senior Accepted with $18K Dean Scholarship to TCU Honors!

Former Timarron student and Southlake Carroll Senior, Craig Miller, has earned the TCU Dean’s Scholarship of $18,000 annually and will be attending TCU as an honors student. Mom Cindy says that “it’s all thanks to his ACT score and GPA.” Craig recounts, “I improved my overall ACT composite score by five points on my second try with a 34 in Math and a 33 in Science. Thank you Bobbie and Timarron College Prep!”

By attending TCU, Craig continues a proud family tradition, following his father and uncle’s footsteps. Mom says “this school is the perfect fit for him both academically and in spirit . . . we’re all bleeding purple over here! Way to go Frogs!” Through the honors program, Craig will be paired up with his college professors to do research during his last years at TCU. His major of choice is Finance, possibly followed up by an MBA or a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Program.

Craig is a Southlake resident and the son of Cindy and Blake Miller. His extra-curricular activities include Play it Forward, Scholars & Athletes Serving Others (SASO), Peer Assistance & Leadership (PALs), National Honors Society, and the National Society of High School Scholars. “We will miss him while he’s away, but we couldn’t be happier with Craig’s college choice!”

World Autism Awareness Day

Those working with students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will recognize the positive impact that structure and organization in daily lives can have on students' sense of security, safety and behavior. Most educators will recognize the value of visual supports for a wide range of students and, when supporting students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, symbols can aid understanding, expression and reduce anxiety.
