Partnering with your teen in the college search and application process can be a game changer. Teens often choose colleges based on what they have heard about schools rather than research specific to their career goals. When parents and teens team up and agree on what they are looking for in a college, teens are more likely to enter a college where they will be successful and graduate on time.
If a teen is unsure of his major, it is worth spending the time to take tests and participate in career counseling to determine the most suitable career fields for the teen to pursue. Determining the major or a related group of majors can help teens and parents choose colleges that offer those programs.
