Start Your Story

This is where your journey gets interesting.

You have your high school years to learn and grow and get involved in whatever catches your interest. You are right where you should be.

You might have a good idea what you want your future to look like, or you might not. It’s okay to be uncertain at this point! Just focus on making the most of high school to ensure you’re ready to pursue your dreams. Take challenging classes, participate in extracurricular activities, and develop good study habits.

Your future is up to you. We’ll be here to help you write your story along the way.

Let us know where you are in your college search process (it’s okay if you change your mind later).
