<![CDATA[Every spring I get questions about high school course selection:
What are the best classes to take for college admission?
Do we need to take advanced courses?
If only three years of math are required, does he need to take math as a senior?
How important are electives or endorsements?
Ideally, everyone should enter high school with a written 4-year plan for courses. Even if you don’t start with a written plan, it is a good idea to map out your plans for core courses and electives.
In this episode of “The College Prep Podcast”, I’ll walk you through how to make a 4 year plan for course selection.
Listen in as we cover the following steps, which you can apply to your high school or your college career:
Gather information about the courses at your school.
Start by laying out requirements and prerequisites on a calendar.
Add electives and “one off” classes.
Strive for balance.
Know your options and make sure you have a back up plan if courses aren’t available when you thought they might be.
