  1. Start a college resume’ by listing out academic, volunteer and community involvement. Download a free resumé template Word document file that you can use for this purpose. 
  2. If you’ve not already started, open a savings account for college tuition and costs.
  3. Remind your student that every grade they earn in high school will affect their final GPA and influence college acceptance and scholarships.
