So, You Want to Go to College…
How does a parent start this process of getting a child into college? Those who are aware of how complicated the process is, start the process in middle school. Choices of curriculum in 7th and 8th grades can impact college admission. But, most importantly, this is the time that students should be forming good work habits and good study habits at school and at home. Good discipline habits can help students achieve all through high school.
It’s also a good idea that students begin their community service and leadership roles even before high school. Many middle schools and elementary schools offer ASB and other leadership programs; students should look into these options if available at their schools.. Programs in science or math are also important steps for preparing for college admission. Science Olympiad is a good choice for young students to become involved in science. It allows students to take concepts and show they can also apply them.
