To broaden your possibilities and future options, you should begin right now:
These steps will be your keys to future opportunities. If, upon graduation, your plans should require more training or education, obtaining information as soon as possible about the types of schools and colleges, their admissions requirements, as well as their costs will be invaluable to your making the best career and college choice.
Ideally, you should select your school or college only after careful consideration of your own needs and preferences and a survey of opportunities available at the individual schools. At first glance, choosing an appropriate institution may seem a difficult task - but, in fact, there will be a number of "appropriate" schools for you.

Your next step will be to obtain information about colleges - many colleges - to find those that might provide the kinds of experiences and educational foundation you are seeking. You might begin sampling the offerings by visiting your high school guidance office, library or learning resource center.
