The Road to College

  • As you begin to think seriously about college, it will help to understand why you are going to college, and what it will be like. You need to look ahead and see what milestones you'll need to reach, and what steps will get you there. Of course, no one expects you to do it alone. Your support team can help, especially your counselor and parents.

  • The College Admission Tests, ACT and SAT, as well as, the GPA are determining factors in consideration for college admission.  Each college has a website with admission requirements and deadlines.  It is important to check them yearly for any updates or changes to the admission requirements.

  • Out of state colleges have specific admission requirements as well.
