Support Strong Attendance

One of the simplest but most important ways to help your child prepare for college is to ensure that s/he maintains a strong attendance record.

Attendance is important for a number of reasons, including:

  • Keeping up with what is happening in the classroom (a key factor in student success on homework assignments, tests, etc.)
  • Showing dedication to and an interest in education and learning (something college admissions officers want to see)
  • Preparing for college courses with attendance requirements

What You Can Do To Support Strong Attendance:

  • Talk to your child about why it's important to be physically present at school.
  • Help your child to establish and maintain a routine that enables him/her to get to school on time.
  • Minimize the number of appointments that take place during the school day.
  • Schedule vacations to coincide with school vacations.
  • Regularly check in with your child's guidance counselor to confirm your child's attendance record.
