What’s your plan for college?
You might be thinking that it’s too early to start thinking about your future and planning for college, but the best time to start planning is NOW. What do you want to be when you get older? What do you have to do to get there? This guide will help you and your family plan for life beyond high school and help you get started with your college plan. Take some time and read through this guide. Then talk to your family and school counselor about your plan for college.
So why should you even think about college? You can explore your interests, discover things you didn’t know and set new goals. College is fun! You’ll meet interesting people and make new friends. You’ll learn how to learn – how to think critically, solve problems and develop new skills. It can take you out of a minimum-wage job and into a good-paying career you enjoy. Studies prove it: Continue your education after high school, and you’re likely to make more money and enjoy a better life.
