No matter what a student’s background and experience is, most encounter some obstacle to understanding the college prep process.
For many, the unfamiliar and (overly)complicated college preparation and application process proves too difficult to manage. Others fail to grasp the importance of a rigorous college prep until too late in their high school years. Some fail to make any postsecondary plans, or make inadequate plans because they do not fully comprehend the social and financial benefits of college. Others wind up in a college that is a poor fit for their academic needs and abilities, ultimately not completing their four-year degree. Poor postsecondary choices are the consequences of too little college knowledge, too late.
College knowledge a key element of college readiness and should be part of a student’s education long before high school. Many educational organizations, including ACT, EPIC, AMLE, and the U.S. Department of Education recommend that students begin learning about college as early as sixth grade. Middle school can play an important role in guiding early preparation for postsecondary education through introducing students and their parents to the college prep and the college process, and teaching students the unique language of college. By the time students get to high school, they should be confidently on the path to postsecondary.
