Did you know that paying for college could be as simple as having a decent GPA? We all know the price of a college education is going up every year. With the present state of the economy, how many families can afford to pick up the price tag of from $60,000 to well over a $100,000 to send each one of their children to college? Not many, of that I can assure you.
Parents, though willing, simply cannot do it, so where will the money come from? Now, more than ever before, your child's academic performance in high school can mean the difference between getting a higher education or not.
Most high school students and their parents know that academics are important, but it is clear from the low academic scores all across the country that many do not really realize that a good GPA combined with acceptable ACT/SAT scores and well-written essays are really the admittance TICKET for college.
Good grades are a free passage to college regardless of how rich or how low on cash a family may be. If you maintain a solid GPA, score well on your SAT/ACT and have a decent essay; you will be admitted to college. It is as simple as that. There is no excuse in the U. S. for anyone not getting a higher education if they really want one.
Typically, both parents and their high school age students fail to recognize the benefits of good study habits and making good grades until it is almost too late. There may be a last ditch effort during the first semester of the senior year to start bringing the grades up, but this late effort is usually not enough.
Beginning with the ninth grade and going through the twelfth grade “ Paying For College – What To Do Academically” guides your high school student through to academic success so that when the time comes to enter college, he or she will have the academic record it takes to be admitted and they will also be ready to do well in college level courses.
This book will appeal to your son or daughter’s sense of pride and responsibility toward their classes. When they actually realize that their daily attention to their studies can be their free ticket to a college education, they suddenly begin to focus on their academics in a new and productive way. They are given the tools the need to develop sound study habits, to do well on ACT/SAT tests, and they are guided through the process of writing essays that will be approved by college admittance committees.
A solid high school academic record is like having a huge college savings fund. It relieves parents of the considerable financial burden of having to pay for college out-of-pocket, and it gives your child a fantastic opportunity to take responsibility for paying his or her way through college. This book empowers high school students to take charge of their high school academics so that college admittance is something to be counted upon rather than something to worry about.
