Getting Help

All of this sounds really good, right? Well it is. But sometimes we all need a little help from someone who really knows what they’re doing so that we can actually get into a postsecondary college or training institute. There are a lot of different people that can help. Here is a list of some that you can start with:

  • High school counselor: your school counselor is number one on the list! Your counselor has actually been trained to help you with your planning and search for a place to go and learn after high school. Make an appointment to go and talk with your counselor –- this is definitely the best place to start.
  • Friends and family who have gone to college: you probably have friends, relatives, neighbors, or other members of your community who have gone to college or gotten more education after high school. These are great people to talk to in order to find out the real scoop: what’s it really like, how much it costs, how hard it is, what a good way is to find out about a place you might want to go, etc.
  • If you have a disability: if you have a disability, your teacher or IEP case manager and some of the other people on your planning team can also help you with this. That doesn’t mean that you can’t go to your school counselor. It just means that you are lucky enough to have a bunch of other people who can probably support you with pursuing education after high school.
