Is 8th grade too early?

Families often ask when they should start preparing a child for college and when they should bring their child in for college advising.
Preparing a child for college is a developmental process that includes academic decisions as well as developing the whole child. So the college preparation process begins very early. If a child does not get a good foundation in reading, writing and math, it is hard to catch up later. Similarly, if a child does not know about college, he may not see how important academics and extra-curricular choices can be.
College advising starts in middle school optimally. It puts a student at a distinct advantage to meet before they begin high school to help them understand how what they do in middle school will affect their college opportunities. Advising them through high school on course selection, extracurricular choices and out of school activities also puts them ahead in college admission competitiveness.
