It's Time to Begin Planning Courses for Next Year

A New Year, a New Start

It's the season to make a fresh start, whether you're resolving to eat better, to save money or to learn a new skill. It's also the time for students to begin planning courses for next year. Whether your student is in middle school or almost in college, it's time to check progress and think about the future.

A high school diploma doesn't necessarily mean students are ready for college courses or job training.

College courses and job training are more difficult than most students realize.

Talk with your student about careers and college.

It's never too early to plan for the future, and missteps can always be corrected with redirection and hard work. For more help on college planning, visit ACT's college planning checklist.
