Motivation & Guidance

Merit College Advisors have the unique ability to help students set their goals and realize their potential.

Merit College Advisors have the unique ability to help students set their goals and realize their potential.

For many students, the high school years are tumultuous. Teenagers neither have the responsibilities of adults nor the guardianship of children. They are experimenting with their identity, trying to fit in at school, and contemplating their future paths. Because many students feel overwhelmed by their lives, many students find it easier to simply ignore planning seriously for their life after high school.

Although some students buckle down and work on improving their GPA's and SAT scores, many are intimidated by the grave decisions that await them and by a daunting path to their future occupation, a path that they don’t fully understand and aren’t sure they want to follow. These students are especially at risk for growing overwhelmed, losing their motivation, and not living up to their potential.

At Merit, we have a unique philosophy for helping students in this situation. We believe that as soon as the student embraces their future career, motivation is no longer a problem. The student is then driven by their desire to reach their goal, the path to get there becomes less mysterious, and the obstacles start to look smaller.

Our advisors can talk to the student to demystify the paths and options they face and tell them exactly what they need to do to make it where they decide to go. This is often enough to motivate the student into action. With Merit College Advisors by his side offering guidance, students are more likely to reach their goal.
