For many immigrants crossing the shores of the United States every year in search of a better life, an American college education is a gateway to a lifetime of opportunities. In spite of the availability of school-based resources, immigrant parents of high school students struggle with understanding the American High School System, and more with navigating the college admission process. This guide breaks down the structure of high school, walks parents and students through the college planning, college selection, and college application processes. It reviews common ways to help pay for a college education and underscores the importance of parental involvement in achieving success for college-bound students. The worksheets included help process the information provided and facilitate the dialogue between student and parent on college-related matters.
