What Does Your Future Hold?

 

       The high school years go by all too quickly. It seems like one day our students are enjoying Homecoming pep fests, playing in extra-curricular activities, looking forward to the senior class trip, and before we know it they are on the stage for the graduation ceremony. Then begins life after high school. For many students, this means attending some type of post-secondary institution. Whether it is to attend a two-year program to learn a trade or a four-year program to earn a college degree, research has shown that those who continue their education beyond high school tend to earn more money in their lifetime, make healthier choices, and be better prepared for their career.

       October is College Knowledge Month in Minnesota. This is a time to recognize the importance of preparing for and applying for college. Our MCW seniors are encouraged to submit an application to attend a post-secondary institution and October is a good time to do this. Below are several helpful resources for high school students and parents to use as they begin looking ahead to life beyond high school. These resources are not just for seniors, all high school age students can start to become familiar with the opportunities available to them after graduation.

The link to the Office of Higher Education website is below. This website has a lot of helpful information about preparing for college.

It is never too early to begin planning for the future.
