This year's middle school campers taught me that they are already thinking about college. I had prepared a high school prep camp for them in July. A few hours into the camp, I realized I had work to do when I noticed they were asking more questions about college than high school.
I quickly added much more college content. We visited a college, took a career interest test, learned about college majors and had a teleconference with a college dean.
An unexpected bonus of the class was that parents who saw their children's career interest test results decided to take the test themselves. That just proves what I have always thought: it is never too early or too late to learn about college because we never stop growing.
