Make High School Count - Parent's guide

En Español

Your child may already have an idea of what to do after high school. This idea may be realistic, like going to a two- or four-year college or entering the workforce. Or, it may be more of a dream, like becoming a professional athlete. Whatever future your child dreams about, the decisions that both of you make now and during high school can be very important.

To help your eighth grader use the next four years wisely, we developed the Make High School Count booklet. Mapping Your Future has partnered with ACT to provide the Make High School Count program online. This Parent Guide has been developed to give you a better understanding of what is in the student guide. This Parent Guide has also been developed to give you a better understanding of what is in the student booklet. Together, they can provide a wonderful opportunity for you and your eighth grader to talk openly about the future.

Make High School Count and this Parent Guide are the result of the work of many people who care about your eighth grader's future. We hope you will use these materials to guide both of you through the next four years. Good luck!
