Preparing for college really depends on what stage of high school you are in as well as your current academic standing. However, keeping your grades up, participating in extra curricular and/or volunteer activities, having good relationships with your teachers (good recommendation letters!) and studying for the ACT will help you in college prep. Speaking with your guidance counselor can also prove helpful in college preparation. Don't wait too late to apply to schools and make sure you read the requirements carefully as each institution may have different requirements. Give yourself time to write essays, take tests, get transcripts, and requests letters of recommendation.

In order to prepare for college. One must first feel proud of themselves for having come this far. Understand that the college environment is different from high school. You will meet different people from different cultures and from different parts of the world with different perspectives. Always be open-minded and respect everyone's insight. Keep in mind that you might encounter obstacles however, it is important to keep pushing through. Most importantly, take the college experience day by day. This is the time when you will start to begin learning more about yourself. It is ok to get stressed out throughout your journey. This is part of the process.
