  • Learn what you need to know for success in college, and even earn college credits before you graduate from high school
  • Get a jump on preparing for a career, from computer networking to culinary arts to medicine to construction — and more
  • Play on a school team, from basketball to chess, football to robotics
  • Participate in bands or choirs, run for student government, or join clubs for everything from math to art to debating
  • Attend a school that offers only middle school grades, only high school grades, or a combination of elementary-middle or middle-high school
  • Go to an all-girls or all-boys school, or to a school with both
  • Pursue your own greatest interests, go after your dream, and graduate with the skills you need to succeed
  • Get the support you need with mentorships, counseling, and tutoring
