Preparing For Senior High & College
Choosing the right senior high track or college course can be quite stressful. With different programs to choose from, it gets overwhelming to pick “the one” that is best suited for you. But you must not make a hasty decision on this important matter. Instead, assess yourself on what you really want to be and consequently, you will find the right path to take.
HERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD KEEP IN MIND WHEN CONSIDERING A TRACK OR COURSE:
Identify your interests, skills, and passion
One way to know what track or course you could choose is knowing what you can and love doing, and what you really want to be in the future. If you have the passion for arts and storytelling, you can explore Communications. If you are a math whiz or a tech buff, you can pursue Information Technology or Engineering. Choosing the path that piques your interest really does make the journey easier and fun. Select the program that will help you explore your skills and ignite your passion
Do your research and gather relevant information
Are you interested in a specific track or course but unsure about its perks? You can do some research about it to know if it’s truly what you want. You may also look at other programs that you are quite curious about, read more information about them, then weigh all possible choices. Which program has value in the future? Which program will help you progress in the industry of your choice? Having clear understanding of their pros and cons makes the decision-making a lot easier and will help you make informed decisions.
List all your prospective schools
Once you have finally realized or somewhat chosen a track or course, you should look up schools that offer them. Go to their websites and read about their profile and program descriptions. Call or send these schools an inquiry for further information. Remember that the right college or senior high school will help you prepare for the future, so choose carefully.
Ask for advice
Another way to better understand the track or course you want to pursue is through a professional. Seek your guidance counselor’s advice to help lay out your options. Or ask people from the field of your interest to have a clearer perspective on the career you want to go after. Advice from the people you are close to matters, too. Basically, they are the ones who understand you better and know what skills you are best at. Go ahead and ask your peers or family about their thoughts and ideas about possible routes you may take.
