GETTING STUDENTS READY FOR COLLEGE AND JOBS
Message from Minister of Education
We are living in an exciting age of change in technology, information exchange, and communications here in Palau and the region. We continue to see and experience changes in the way we work, the products we use, and the impact of technology in our daily lives. These changes have resulted in today’s workforce needing increasingly advanced levels of knowledge. Thirty years ago it may have been possible to find a good paying job with only a high school education, but now it’s important to have some education past high school that results in a certificate, degree, or industry credential. A solid educational foundation can be your key to a successful future.
What are you going to do to prepare for this workplace? With some post secondary credential or college degree, you will have more jobs from which to choose. Getting a college education requires a lot of time, effort and careful planning, but it provides knowledge and skills you will use for the rest of your life to help you succeed in whatever you undertake. Make your educational experience a successful one. Start planning early so that you will meet all the requirements for high school graduation and entry into college. This guide will help you learn more about your interests for making career decisions, college requirements, financial aid, and the application process. What direction will you take with your life? Let college be one of your goals. Start planning now so that you will be college ready when you graduate from high school.
