High School to College Road Map - now updated

07/31/2014 - Road MapIn today’s world, students need more than a high school diploma to get the jobs they want and reach their goals for the future. Attending a public, private, or community college after completing high school — or pursuing some type of advanced technical training — is absolutely essential.

As students progress through high school, they are faced with decisions, responsibilities, and deadlines related to finding the right college, technical school, or apprenticeship program. The High School to College Road Map sequences the things students need to do throughout their freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years. It tells them when to begin researching colleges, take the SAT or ACT, apply for financial aid, and more.

The 2014 edition of the High School to College Road Map has been revised and updated to include Internet resources that will assist students along the way. Download a free copy of the Road Map in English or Spanish:
