Getting Ready For College

Finding the right college takes a little preparation. But don’t worry – you can do it! In this section, you’ll learn about matching your interests to careers and academic programs. You’ll also find info about high school credit requirements and the entrance exams you’ll need to take. Be sure to “check out” the grade-level checklists, too. They’re handy lists of everything you should do, at each grade level, to prepare for college.

You’ll also find info about how extracurricular activities – you know, sports, clubs, jobs, etc. – play into the college planning and prep process.
