Samantha knew two things about her future education when she came to Future Stars...She wanted to earn a degree in nursing and she wanted to attend a university with big spirit and small classes. Samantha's parents wanted to support her goals, but knew that smaller, private universities usually come with big price tags. They’d saved enough to send her to a public university, but these schools wouldn’t offer Samantha the personal attention she desired.
Julia came to Future Stars uncertain of what she wanted to study in college. She was a dedicated ballet dancer and her academic interests were centered on math and science. In working with her Future Stars counselor, Julia came to realize that — while she loved performing — her future would not be as a professional dancer. As high school continued, Julia enrolled in and enjoyed advanced classes in math and science.
