Overview

It's never too early to think about college -- about the benefits
of a college education and about ways to put college within reach
academically and financially. Throughout their school years,
students make academic and other decisions that affect whether
they will be eligible to enter college. You -- working with
others -- can help your child make these decisions wisely.
This resource book is designed to help you with that process. It
will help you work with your child and with your child's teachers
and guidance counselors, to ensure that he or she has the option
of going to college. It will help your child to prepare
academically for the rigors of college. A good academic record
will help ensure that your child has a range of opportunities
when the time comes to decide about college. Although this book
was written primarily as a long-term planning guide for parents,
guidance counselors and teachers will also find it useful and
informative.
