Middle School Student Exploration


Middle School is not too early to begin the college and career conversation. 90% of parents expect their children to go to college, however most do not have conversations with their child regarding college until High School or later. 

Begin preparing your child for college success using these tools and resources:

  • Own Your Future - a parent guide for speaking to and guiding your child into the college and career discussion
  • 7th Grade Goal Book - A year's worth of planned activities and discussion to help prepare your child for post-secondary education and begin career exploration
  • Pre-College Summer Youth Enrichment programs - Many colleges and universities offer summer programming. Often these programs are free of charge! Check out the programs at Michigan Technological University and begin your search for middle school enrichment at your college of choice
