    Thank you for the great advice! We are taking our 6th and 8th grader to colleges within the state to check them out this year! Help them get encouraged to look forward to attending college!

    Well here we are again. I wish we would have had this advice and prep list with the first two (one is in his second year of college and our daughter is starting this spring). We now have a 7th grader who is already taking honors high school level courses so we are starting this process with some 20/20 hindsight. This list is fantastic and coupled with our prior experience it is invaluable.

    This is a fantastic timeline for high school teens. If students are looking for more information on funding their postsecondary education, they can visit our guide to scholarships for high school seniors.

    I read somewhere else that the PSAT should be taken the 10th grade year.  Which is it?  I am just starting to think about planning for my 8th grader.

  8. Tisha Rinker says:

    Thanks Ripper for your question! PSAT is typically taken in 10th grade as a practice for the SAT and then can be taken in 11th grade for the National Merit Scholarship (NMS). The PSAT is the qualifying exam for NMS.

    I would like to keep this website in mind until I am in high school. I am in my last  year of Elementary school. I am almost in middle school.

    A college fair is a great spot to learn about many different schools, all in one place.

    There, you will be able to gather information you are looking for on potential colleges from college representatives who are scouting for students that would fit well at their schools.
