I have told dd1 who is now an 8th grader that we need to stop documenting all the activities that she is in so we will remember when the time comes to fill out college applications.

Here she will be eligible to take college classes in highschool if her grades are good enough which they should be as she is in advanced classes now.

learn from someone that was never going to go to college, never say never. As you do not know when life will give you a handful of lemons, and you need to go to college to better yourself.

Work on your weak areas, where they can be stronger when you do take your test, you can do ok on them.

if you are away from college do not get into the point of being a couch potato, as if you, you will pay with all the walking you have to do in college from classes. It so different from H school than it is in college.

If you do go off to college, don't think you have to get your books at the bookstore, there are a few sites you can get books from, and some times even other stores.

start now looking into scholarships, grants.

Thanks for sharing those great idea. Anyway I would like to add up some ideas for some moms with teens entering high school. Another good idea is sending teens to a college preparatory school. In my son's case, I tried to enroll him to West Nottingham Academy, it is the oldest boarding school in America. It's a coeducational college preparatory boarding school in Maryland, on a beautiful campus near the Chesapeake Bay.
Check this link for more ideas on teen boarding school.
