There’s a big push these days among parents, teachers, and guidance counselors for students to personalize their education – to take classes that are meaningful to them, develop a unique list of colleges that suit their needs and embark on a career path all their own.
We couldn't agree more. At a time when schools are struggling to meet student needs, it's a good idea to personalize your education. Try the following tips to get started:
5 Tools to Personalize Your High School Education
Developing a Personal Education Plan
Online programs offer a great deal of freedom and flexibility. You’re not at the mercy of others; you’re making your own decisions. Want to spend an extra 20 or 30 minutes working on math, go for it! Need more information on college choices? Don’t wait for a meeting with your guidance counselor, do it yourself.
Work at your own pace in as many areas as possible, from academics to college selection and carer research.
By figuring out your college and career plans as early as possible, you develop a personalized schedule sooner. This allows you to work toward your goals longer and get better results. After all, if you start studying for the SATs in your junior year, you’re going to cram and probably not do as well. By starting in 9th grade, you can go at a reasonable pace and let the information sink in. At your pace. Your way.
RSC’s program helps students personalize your education regardless of GPA or future plans, because no matter where you are, we’re there with you. Your life is about what you want. Don’t let your education be standardized – get it personalized!
