Dear Parents, You are the most important and influential people in your chil- dren’s lives. During their high school years, your children need you to be interested and involved in their activities and in their academic progress. They also need you to take an active interest in their planning and preparation for college. There are a number of things you can do to ensure that your child will be prepared for college. You can see that he/she takes the right courses, signs up for the required tests, and completes the necessary forms. With your help and guidance, your child will be ready to continue his/her education after high school. This booklet will give you the information you need to help your child plan and prepare for college!
