America is the land of opportunity, a place where we can make many of our dreams come true.Helping our children obtain a college education is one of the tools they need to make their dreams become a reality.

The cost of a college education has risen rapidly without any sign of decreasing. According to the College Board, in 2003-2004 the average cost of a four-year public college rose to $4,694, which is a 14.1% increase. During that same time, the average private school increased 6% to $19,710 for one year.

 

While college may seem far away, you should start planning now. Will you be ready for the tuition payments and costs? Since most of these funds will come directly from your budget, you will need to start saving for college as early as you can. By doing so, you could give your children the widest possible choice of schools when the time comes.

A U.S. Census Bureau report found that college graduates earn 85 percent more than those with just a high school diploma over the course of their normal working lifetime. Give your children this needed advantage.
