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.
