The best college advice I’ve read recently (and less than 400 words).
If you are somehow involved in the college process, as a parent, student or teacher, this blog post from the Director of College Counseling at Swickley Academy is a must read.
Two of my favorites:
I. View the college process as manageable and enjoyable. It’s truly a simple, three-step process:
- Guided self-reflection
- College research
- College application and selection process
II. Don’t get caught up in the hype.
Students do NOT need to begin the college search process in Grade 9. In fact, they would be much better served to focus that energy on doing well in classes and getting involved in their school and in their community.
