Why should you go to college?
Opportunities! A college education offers you greater potential in both personal and career growth. By exploring your interests and learning about the world around you, you will develop additional skills useful both on and off the job. And, college graduates generally earn thousands of dollars more than those without a degree or specialized training.
What do I need to do before applying to a college?
If you are planning on attending a college or university, you will need to take either the ACT or SAT test. Most colleges accept either of these standardized test scores. Check with the college, university or school you would like to attend to make sure they accept the test you wish to take. Visit the Test Prep section of this site for more information and helpful tips on standardized tests.
