        Why Choose College?

        College is a time of exploration, discovery, and personal growth. Step outside of your comfort zone and explore the vast array of programs and opportunities available.

        A college degree offers numerous advantages for high school graduates:

        • Higher earning power: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, college graduates tend to earn more over time than people with high school degrees. They also experience lower unemployment rates. 
        • Increased independence: You’ll gain valuable experience managing your time, finances, and studies.
        • Exposure to new ideas and people: College provides a vibrant environment with diverse perspectives and opportunities to learn from professors and experts in your chosen field.
        • Preparation for specific careers: Many professions require a college degree.

        We’ve built a comprehensive database of colleges and universities around the world specifically tailored to high school students. Check out our various guides, including our Guide to Performing & Visual Arts Colleges and Guide to College Admissions. Search our TeenLife Blog, which also includes a wealth of information about all things related to college and university—from scholarships to student testimonials and everything in between.

        Make College Affordable

        While college costs can be a concern, many universities offer scholarships and financial aid to help make education accessible. In-state tuition at a public university is less than tuition at a private institution. Use the filters to sort colleges aligned with your interests and budget.
