Whether you consciously know it or not, you have been preparing for college your entire life. You have been learning academic subjects, to interact socially, to be a team member, and to be a leader. You have also learned work ethic, responsibility, and time-management.
During your 4 years of high school you will continue to learn the academic subjects that will help you function in the day-to-day world. You will also continue to learn how to nurture social relationships. However, you now have access to a College Career Resource Center to assist you in pulling it all together.
It’s important to spend time reflecting on who you are and where you want to go. At some point you will need to decide where you will go to college, what you will study, and what career you will pursue. These decisions will NOT happen overnight. They take continuous thought and planning.
Going to College is a wonderful goal to have. College attendance isn’t another step up on the education ladder. The transition to college isn’t like the simple transition from grammar school to junior high, or junior high to high school. Admittance entails hard work, organization, finances, self-awareness, a path of interest, and confidence within yourself and your dreams. College is not only education, it is exploration as well!
There will be programs hosted by the College Career Resource Center for each grade-level. It is very important that you attend these programs each year so that you can learn about what you should be doing at that specific stage in your high school career. Colleges have many requirements for admissions; you want to stay on track every step of the way!
