• Consider enrolling your child in Advanced Placement (AP) courses for college credit. AP courses can help reduce the overall cost of college by enabling your child to earn college credit while still in high school.
  • Encourage your child to start considering career options. What might your child like to do? To study? Where?
  • Stress the importance of studying and getting good grades. Your child's GPA (Grade Point Average) will play a role in his or her admittance into his or her college of choice.
