WSAC Resources for Graduating Seniors

It's common for graduating seniors to lose momentum during summer break. The last two years have been particularly challenging, but don't let that derail your hopes and dreams for the future. Take time this summer to reflect on what you want life to look like down the road.

Once graduation is behind you (Congratulations!), set yourself up for success in life after high school:

  • Have a plan for college or career training. It's not too late!
  • Check out the Graduate Handbook, which provides next steps for recent high school graduates. The handbook includes a to-do list, info about college course types, financial aid tips, and more.
  • Don't forget to prepare a budget, and make sure you know how to access health care.
  • Need help? Have questions? Identify supportive people and places in your community or on your future college campus. 

Parents and families can help! Ask the adults in your life to review the Family Guide: Supporting Your Child After High School, which helps family members support graduates as they prepare for and complete their first year in college. The family guide is available in eight languages.  

Life is changing, but you are ready—you can do this! Stay on track and plan your future on the Washington Student Achievement Council website.
