College Admission Efforts Start in Middle School

Adolescents start to question who they are and discover meaningful pursuits for their future. Those who finish middle and high school successfully are students who develop clear goals, actionable plans, and useful opportunities. Starting this process early allows time to try new things, build relevant skills, and make prudent decisions leading college applications.

Legend College Preparatory advocates for a strong Course of Study, a profile which shows how an individual student has challenged oneself through coursework relevant to their major, well-rounded extracurricular activities, and distinguished opportunities to set themselves above the rest of the competition.

In fact, moving towards a college focus early ensures lower stress and better results by the time your senior year rolls around. Save all the effort of false starts and dead ends with a course planning appointment today.

Legend College Preparatory’s Young Scholar Program offers necessary training and support to your family to effectively drive the right efforts for your child.
