• Welcome to Alvin ISD's College and Career Center's Page.
     
    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.
    Step 8: Fill out FAFSA after January 1 of your senior year. www.fafsa.ed.gov
