Join in Rock Your Future 

All over Texas, students are finding their voices, setting goals, and taking steps toward securing their own successful futures as part of creating a movement called Generation TX. Our students are Generation TX, and they are what’s next for Texas. With the support of their families and their communities, Texas students can become the most successful generation ever.

Generation TX’s Rock Your Future fall promotion (August-November) is focused on getting students, especially those in middle school and high school, thinking about their future and next steps toward college and career readiness. Our hallways, events and messages to students will focus on letting students know the Top 5 Ways to Rock Your Future:

1. You can’t get in if you don’t apply. Texas makes it easy. ApplyTexas.org lets you submit one application to all Texas public universities as well as many private and two-year colleges. 

2. Your scores matter. Study hard, keep your GPA high, and take the PSAT, SAT and/or ACT for college applications and scholarships.  Talk to your counselor, and visit the websites: collegeboard.org and act.org for more information. 

3. Visit college campuses. A college education opens doors to boundless career opportunities. College isn’t limited to four-year gigs. Your options for college include two-year schools, technical schools, certificate programs, as well as universities. Visit campuses and make the choice that’s right for you.

4. Find a mentor. Seek out a knowledgeable adult to guide you through the college application process. An experienced parent, counselor, teacher, or family friend can be a valuable advisor on your journey to college. Talk with someone who works in a career that sparks your curiosity.

5. Create a brag sheet. It’s never too early to create a brag sheet that organizes all of your accomplishments, community service, awards, internships, etc. This handy document will help you fill out scholarship applications, college applications, prepare for interviews, etc.
