Dear Middle School Student:
Think about college as an important part of your future. Discuss your thoughts and ideas with your family and with people at school.
Start saving for college if you haven't already.
Take challenging and interesting classes to prepare for high school.
Ask your parent or guardian to help you research which high schools or special programs will most benefit your interests.
Develop strong study habits.
Do your best in school and on standardized tests. If you are having difficulty don't give up-get help from a teacher, tutor, or mentor.
Become involved in school- or community-based activities that let you explore your interests and learn new things.
Speak with adults, such as your teacher, school counselor or librarian, relatives, or family friends, who you think have interesting jobs. Ask them what they like about their job and what education they needed for it.
Join the STANDARDIZED TEST PREP ACADEMY starting in the 6th grade!!!
What do you want to do for a living?
Take time to explore career options before you begin your program of study at college or career school. A good understanding of your estimated earnings is key to determining reasonable student loan amounts. Learn about assessing the net price of a school in which you’re interested. A lower net price means less borrowing on your part!
