Heading to college

Why does anyone go to college? We often hear “to get a better job.” However, so many teens embark on the college search process without taking time to consider careers and majors–the two things that should be driving the process. What do you need to know right now, while your teen is still in high school? There are steps parents can take to help their teens with career and major decisions which are right around the corner.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Parents and Students – Entering Grades 8-12
