My Son’s #JourneyToCollege
Look at my baby! He’s 15 and getting ready to start his sophomore year of high school. Last year he was an honor student and really doing so well. While he has some challenges coming up (more about those in a later post), college is still a priority! He really buckled down last year when he hit high school and started focusing on his own #JourneyToCollege. He is quite interested in photography and graphics and really is very gifted! He hopes to make a career out of those passions and I truly believe he can do anything!
Tenth grade opens a whole bunch of doors that I really didn’t know about! I had no idea that the #JourneyToCollege really kicks into high gear in the tenth grade. The free 2014 KapMap College Planner really opened my eyes to what we need to accomplish this year in order to ensure that he’s on the right track for his #JourneyToCollege! Kaplan is really helping us to keep tabs on the things that must be done as well as to not feel so overwhelmed – plus they are helping my son feel prepared!

Sophomore Year #JourneyToCollege Steps
Thanks to KapMap I learned that my son has to register for PSAT’s next month and take them in October. Eek! He needs to get ready! He visited two college campuses last year but this year he needs to start visiting a few more. Than, in February he’ll have to start preparing for the SAT/ACT tests and take those in May.
Oh, and in case you thought you already had everything planned out for the SAT’s … The SAT will change in 2016. Get familiar with the changes at SAT Change Resource Center .
