Foundations for Success

Your child’s first steps toward success are to take high school courses that support his or her postsecondary goal. Extracurricular activities play an important role as well.

College: If college is the target, a strong schedule of classes – such as English, math (algebra I and II, geometry, trigonometry, calculus), foreign language, science
(biology, chemistry, physics), and history or social studies – should help your child be prepared.
Vocational or Technical Training: This path may require another set of classes. The school guidance counselor or teachers can help your child determine which classes will be most helpful in reaching his or her goal.
Extra-curricular Activities: In addition, high school activities such as school clubs, internships, community service, and sports can build skills needed on the job.

These skills include responsibility, time management, and leadership. Stay involved as your child progresses through high school. While it is likely that your child will want some independence, remain aware of your child’s studies and after-school activities.
