Chalk Talk: Early Preparation for College
When thinking about college, it is difficult to know where to begin. Even if a student is not interested in the traditional four-year post-graduation education, it would be helpful for them to consider a two-year course so they can have a better chance of succeeding in the job market. Some high schools offer programs called tech-prep, school-to-career, or similar names which are worthwhile to look into. If a four-year education is the choice, students need to consider taking as many science and mathematics courses that they can. Quite often this is the area that admission offices look at when making decisions. They also consider extracurricular activities, including any volunteering or awards. It is never too early to begin to help a child prepare for success in entering the college of their choice.
