Did you know that only a third of U.S. high school students are prepared for college? Did you also know that approximately 40 percent of college students drop out? These are shocking statistics.
Plan out goals for higher education
Meet with a college adviser
Save up money
If working during the summer break is an option for you, do it! Having a summer job where you are not in school will be extremely beneficial when it comes to saving up some money.
Student loan debt is at an all-time high, so any money that you can save up will be helpful, even if it’s just for textbooks (it all adds up!)
Don’t focus too much on extracurriculars
Invest in tutoring services
The SAT and ACT college preparation exams are also a vital factor in the college admissions process, so getting a tutor who is a professional in these subjects will be a huge benefit. Getting high scores on the SAT or ACT shows colleges your capability for higher-level education and provides opportunities for grants or scholarships that could potentially save you thousands.
