Graduating high school is an exciting milestone for students, but it can also be intimidating. Up until this point, students have known what is expected of them and have had teachers and parents providing guidance. Now all of a sudden, students are expected to prepare for university or college, with lecture-style classes, minimal guidance, and greater levels of accountability than they may be used to.
The transition from high school to postsecondary school is definitely not an easy one, and students may feel stressed, anxious, and uncertain. Parents want to help, but aren’t sure how much they should get involved. How can students learn how to be organized, advocate for themselves, and set themselves up for success in postsecondary school? All of these skills can be taught!
