High School Student and Parent Resources for College


College wasn’t an option for me, I had to go and of course, I’m glad I did. The road to getting into colleges and universities begins the first day of 9th grade when high school begins. College and university admission people look at the transcript from 9th grade to the time of application, which means knowing some of the information in these resources can help  you plan ahead.
