High School is a great time to learn, explore, develop, and dream. As a freshman, you may not know where you want to go to college or what you want to study. However, there are things you can do to move you towards being ready. This preparation starts freshman year!

You need to prepare to select, apply, and be accepted to a college of your choice. Then, you need to prepare for the challenges you will face once you arrive and start your college education. The following links and details can help you prepare for academic success in college.
