College prep starts early CORNER preparing for college begins with prepara- tion for high school. Universities indicate that students should start preparing for higher edu- cation in middle school. Baylor University's guide "Preparing for College" suggests that students that wait until high school to start preparing for college have waited too long. They recommend planning for college by planning for high school as early as the 7th or 8th grade. A recent Harris Interactive poll of 7th and 8th grad- ers found that 92 percent believe they are likely to attend college, but only 32 percent had obtained any information about prepar- ing for college. Middle school is a good time for students to con- tinue investigating career options, set future goals and begin the path toward postsecondary educa- tion. Students can begin planning their course of study by choosing classes in middle school that will prepare them for appro- priate high school courses that correspond to a career path. Classes can include electives like creative arts, journalism, athletics and technology courses to help a student discover their interests. Students also should be encouraged to get involved in commu- nity service opportunities, clubs and other school organizations and believe COUNSELOR'S CORNER, pg. 4B Middle school band students reach Region STAFF REPORT A dozen Hays CISD mid- dle school band members successfully auditioned at Austin's Covington Mid- dle School for the Region Band.
