It's never too early to begin the college search! Students and their parents should start having important conversations about the future early sophomore year of high school, and actually visiting schools early junior year, to make sure they're fully prepared when deciding where to go.
So when should parents start doing this stuff? When when are you supposed to start looking at school? Starting to open up conversation on, um, where you might want to go to school, What you might want to do light in the software year, Start the conversations early in the junior year, start going and looking at schools because you need to take. So more and more schools are telling kids to wait till their senior year to take S A T s and a CTS, and that is bad. Athletes cannot wait. People who want to be selected to be in competitive fields like they want to be on. Let's say they want to go to Alabama and play in the band. Alabama has the most competitive band in the world. You cannot wait to your senior year to test because they are filling their classes from kids who are interested in their junior year. And then they apply early action, which is by November 1st of their senior year. So you cannot wait to test because you need those test scores in hand for this November 1st through November 15th Application cut off dates. That means you need your essay written, you need your application filled out. That's a lot of pressure to put on a kid who's also got a full time student load and playing a sport or participating in band or debate or whatever. So I tell the parents and the students start in your junior year. Your you need to spend your family time, your vacation time. I'm sorry, it's just what it is. And you're gonna miss some school, going to colleges and doing official tours, and they should be official and your feet need to be on campus, and they need to know you're there because the kid the difference.
