|I want to go to college. What should I do to be ready by the time I graduate from high school? That is the number one question that we are hearing from students and their parents concerning their students.
Answer: Make a "To Do List." Might we suggest this one:
Step 1: Explore career choices.
Step 2: Take rigorous classes. Dual credit, Pre-AP, and AP courses add additional points to a person's GPA. GPA determines class rank.
Step 3: Go on college visits.
Step 4: Do Volunteer Service.
Step 5: Create an Academic Resume.
Step 6: Take the ACT and/or SAT by the end of your junior year.
Step 7: Apply for scholarships.
