Designed to help children succeed as they prepare for college and careers, ACT Parent features articles that empower you as a parent.
August is back-to-school time and many juniors and seniors know it’s also time to think about college. ACT’s article — College Prep Checklist: Simple Ways to Stay on Track — offers tips and techniques to help you prepare your teen for life after high school.
Back-to-school also means back to the books.
If your tween or teen’s homework skills are a tad rusty from the summer, be sure to read Homework Help Is on the Way. ACT’s mission is to help everyone achieve education and workplace success. This article will provide guidelines to make homework stress-free.
If your junior high or high school student hasn’t decided on a career or major — and most haven’t — check out Career Exploration Made Easy in this edition. ACT offers many free resources to help make research both fun and informative.
