Getting Ready for College
Part of being successful in college is understanding how it differs from high school (pdf). But while higher education will involve change, students can get a head start now in a variety of ways—by preparing for the SAT or ACT test, taking high school summer school courses or even earning college credit.
Parents should also be prepared for how their role changes once their student is in college. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) can impact the access parents have to a student's records, so it's important to understand how that might affect your family.
Working together, you and your student will be ready for all that comes next!
