Elementary Parent Guide to College Career
Readiness
Success in early reading and math The student
can read on grade-level and do grade-level math
by the end of second grade.
Decision making The student understands the
decision-making process. Encourage your child to
make decisions on their own perhaps with a
small spending budget or arranging a family day
out. Anything that involves choices.
  • Really? I need to think about life after high
    school while my child is in elementary school?
  • Yes , you really do. Research shows that the
    progress a child makes towards college and career
    readiness by 8th grade is critical to their
    future success. That means that the foundation
    is laid during the upper elementary years.

Personal Responsibility The student exhibits
good work habits. Help your child by increasing
responsibility around the house and for doing
schoolwork.
  • Career Development Skills
  • Awareness of the relationship between school and
    work.
  • Skills to understand and use career information.
  • Awareness of the benefits of academic
    achievement.
  • Awareness of different occupations and the
    changing gender roles.
  • Awareness of the career planning process.
  • NCDA Guidelines

Here are some career development and academic
skills and knowledge that will help your child be
ready for college and career.
Interpersonal relationships The student
interacts positively with those around him/her.
Help your child by exposing them to experiences
that require that they work or play with others.

Middle School Parent Guide to College Career
Readiness
Meeting grade-level standards in core classes.
This is the biggest predictor of success in high
school and post-secondary. Students struggling
in a core class in 8th grade have a difficult
time meeting standards in high school.
Healthy coping strategies for problems and
challenges that come their way. Dont be quick
to rescue your middle-schooler rather,
encourage him/her to strategize healthy ways to
meet the challenge.
Really? I need to think about life after high
school while my child is in middle school? Yes ,
you really do. Research shows that the progress
a child makes towards college and career
readiness by 8th grade is critical to their
future success. In one study, only 2 of 10
eighth-graders were on track for successful
college-level work by the time they graduate from
eighth grade.
School attendance is a strong indicator of
success in high school and beyond.
Ability to manage time and planning for projects
and commitments. Help your child plan their
assignments and projects.
  • Career Development Skills

    and work.

    interests.
  • Knowledge of skills necessary to seek and obtain
    employment.

Here are some career development and academic
skills and knowledge that will help your child be
ready for college and career.
After-school programs that are school-based and
high quality can provide children with a sense
that they can do well academically. They also
try harder at school.
I WILL be ready for life after high school!
