Make a game plan now for future success
Making the jump to college takes some preparation, and there's usually a team supporting each student's efforts. Waubonsee wants to be part of that team too, and help more students succeed in higher education. To make that happen, we developed a College and Career Readiness initiative for students, parents, instructors, counselors and administrators.
Information for high school students and their parents
Being ready for college means more than having the right textbooks and plenty of highlighters. It means having a solid foundation in key subject areas, and knowing how to navigate the world of higher education. Learn more about how you can prepare now for your college experience.
