Think College Early: Preparation + Planning = Success
Education after high school is the roof on your educational "house". You can attend community, technical and junior colleges. These schools have programs that are 2-years or shorter. These programs lead to a license, certificate or Associate's degree.
By taking algebra by the 8th grade and geometry by the 9th, you will be ready for the high school classes you need to prepare for education after high school. The walls of your educational "house" are now up. It's time to put a roof on!
In middle school the walls of your educational "house" start to go up. The classes you take in middle school help you prepare for high school.
Getting an education is a lot like building a house. You start in elementary school with a good foundation of reading, writing and arithmetic. You build on these classes in middle school.
