How to Set Your Child up on the Academic Path to College

Considering the possibility of college for your child can truly enhance their academic path and set them up for a brighter future. Even if they are just in elementary school or are starting middle school, now is the time to start encouraging them to go to college. The following advice can help you talk to your child about going to college and taking the right steps towards making it a reality.

How to Help Your Child Better Understand the Concept of College

  • Introduce the subject of college. First find out if your child has heard anything about college, if they know what it is, and if they have any questions regarding it. Get them curious about this and let them share any questions they have regarding the topic.
  • Don't just tell your child what college is, show them. Rent family-friendly movies that focus on the importance and the privilege of going to college. Try movies such as ¨Homeless to Harvard¨ and other motivational movies that depict the idea of going to college as something to look forward to and work hard for. Do research with them on the best colleges for different careers and take them to visit actual college campuses.
  • Have your child write down more specific questions and provide them with the opportunity to directly ask their questions. Contact your local colleges and universities and take a few trips this summer to visit college campuses. Your child doesn't have to be in high school to start doing this. Even elementary school aged children can enjoy the experience.
  • Let your child know that they can count on your support to help them go to college but that they need to put in their part as well. Make sure they understand that what they do now can help them get closer or further away from their goal of going to college.
