Preparing for college

Different colleges require different pre-requisite classes to take. The most important thing you can do in Ninth Grade is to go see your counselor to find out what classes you need to take for whatever college or university that you are interested in applying for. Then you have to make sure you get those classes. The best person who is going to tell you those classes for colleges and universities is the counselor. Another place to look is to go to the website of any college that you want to go to and find out what classes you need to take in high school, in order to be eligible to apply for that university. That's the easiests way to find out. Planning for college begins in Ninth Grade. That's the best place to start.
