As you embark upon the ACT/SAT Prep Course, it is imperative that you gain a holistic understanding of standardized testing and how it will impact your post-secondary aspirations. This project will involve some in depth research into your specific post-secondary goals and exactly what specific post-secondary training will lead you to that goal. You will choose three (3) post-secondary education institutions upon which you will conduct specific, thorough research. Additionally, you will choose two (2) careers upon which you will also conduct specific and thorough research. After this research, you will analyze each with respect to its appropriateness for your individualized career aspirations. After successfully completing this project, you will be able to confidently respond to questions like
What college/universities/technical career programs are you planning to pursue?
What career paths interest you?
What are the requirements for admittance into my program/school of choice?
What is the financial obligation I will face as I pursue this career path?
What is the possible salary I can expect in my desired field of study?
What level of academic performance/financial need must I exhibit to be considered for financial aid (scholarships, grants, loans)?
Considering your high school academic achievement, post-secondary aspirations and personal preferences, what specific institutions will be a good fit for you?
