If your child has aspirations of attending college and is approaching the high school grade level, it might be worth beginning that search now. As you’ll see within the infographic highlighted within this post, nearly 46% of families with a child interested in applying to college have begun exploring options the moment their child begins high school. While this is traditionally early, as most students will have to wait to apply till they’re at least juniors, parents can still begin encouraging their children to think about the future. Similarly, their children can actively select courses throughout high school that interest them and could move the needle forward in regards to selecting their college major. It’s never too early to be thinking about college admissions, so for more information on how both parents and students can prepare, be sure to check out the resource included amongst this post.
