It’s important that your teen develop those study skills sooner than later—both for success in high school and in college.
So, your college-bound student is starting to think about taking the SAT and/or ACT this summer—for the first, second or even third time. A summer exam prep plan is definitely in order.
Parents of high school students have plenty on their minds, but at the top of the list is paying for college—and for good reason. While many families plan on taking out federal loans to help cover the cost, teens should absolutely apply for scholarships.
With school on break, summer is a great chance for high school students to dedicate time to the college search, including looking for scholarships. The process of finding and applying for scholarships takes commitment and effort, however.
In just about every subject, professors assign essays along with many other writing assignments. But beyond the fact that students are expected to do a lot of it in college, why else is the ability to write so important?
If your teen complained about being bored last summer, it’s time to reframe the thinking. Summer break is a perfect opportunity to gain experience and better oneself.
College entrance exam scores are a significant factor in admission too. Make sure your teen prepares effectively for the SAT or ACT with an exam prep program.
Your teen might be vaguely aware of the counseling office at his high school, but less aware of what the staff in this office does to help students prepare for the college search and application process.
You’ve obviously heard about the SAT, but what about the SAT Subject Tests? These exams are college admission tests on specific subjects. Students can choose the tests that best showcase their strengths and weaknesses.
