College & Career

Even though your child is still in elementary school, it's never too early to start talking about college and career! There are many ways parents can help children create a college-going culture.
  • Talk about your education and career
  • Discuss a variety of other careers so your child knows there are many options out there
  • Talk about your child's college and career goals
  • Introduce your child to colleges and after high-school training programs by visiting websites together
  • Encourage your child to do the best they can now in order to prepare for the future and develop his or her strengths
