It's never too early to start planning for your life after high school.
It is never too early to begin planning, both academically and financially, for life after high school. All students should graduate high school with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to navigate and succeed in the postsecondary education or training necessary for their chosen career.
Whether a student wants to go to college or get a job after graduation, getting the best possible foundation is essential. Taking the right courses now will allow students to follow their chosen path.
Although earning a college degree, technical certification, or professional license requires a great deal of time, effort, and planning, it also provides knowledge, experiences, and options that will last a lifetime.
