Now is the time to follow a more specific path. Encourage your child to decide whether they want to pursue full-time employment, further education or training (such as an apprenticeship, a technical school, a two-year or four-year college), or begin a military career. If students are interested in attending a military academy, they should talk to a school counselor about starting the application process now.
You and your child should continue gathering college information. Requesting more information on a college’s admission website will help your teen learn more about the college and will let the college know that your child is interested.
To narrow down college options, have your child begin by making a list of schools that meet criteria and preferences (for example, size, location, cost, academic majors, or special programs). Your child should weigh each of the factors according to their importance then develop an initial ranking of the schools on the list. Please contact me if you would like documents to assist with this process.
Encourage your teen to go to college fairs, attend college nights, and speak with college representatives who visit the high school. Additionally, you and your child can explore options using these online tools:
