This teen-friendly documentary-style program helps middle school students understand why they need to start thinking about college now.
In the video, real-life students from four-year, two-year, and technical programs share their personal experiences, their decisions to pursue higher education, and the availability of financial aid.
Viewers will learn what makes college different from middle and high school, and why basic skills such as reading, writing, and problem solving will serve them well in the future and should be mastered in middle and high school.
