...A First Step in Planning for High School and Beyond
Each 8th grade student now has an account with College Foundation of North Carolina. CFNC is a website which allows students to discover, explore, and learn about their interests and strengths (through numerous self assessments) on their path to developing their high school four year plan, exploring possibilities for post high school education, and ultimately becoming career ready.
Not only does CFNC provide components for student career exploration and planning, it also provides resources for school success, financial literacy (paying for college) links, college entrance requirements, college prep test practices (SAT and ACT), and even the opportunity to electronically apply on line to NC Universities and Colleges. Additionally, there are many inks for parents as they help their children prepare for high school, college, and careers.
