Tips

Be proactive. 
Know what classes your child is taking, what activities they are involved with, and who their friends are. Ask your child if you don't know.

Do your homework. 
Research the requirements for high school graduation, college entrance, and financial aid. The more you know, the more you'll be able to help your children. Great resources for this information include your child's high school counselor, TRIO staff, and other parents.

Stay involved.  
The more engaged you are in your child's life, the more likely they are to succeed. Read to young children; attend back-to-school nights; establish contact with your child's teacher(s) early and often. 

Ask for help.  
Don't be afraid to seek out help if you need it. There are many people who are ready and willing to provide you with the assistance you need. Call your child's high school counselor (or Upward Bound) for information about the SATs or ask another parent for advice. 

Plan ahead.
