Specific entrance requirements vary from college to college. Certain guidelines may be mentioned, but you must always check the requirements of the particular school of your choice.Most general guidelines include graduation from an accredited high school, with rank in the upper one third or one fourth of your graduating class or, in some cases, with a B average, and 15 or 16 units total in:
English, mathematics, science, social studies, foreign language and other electives.

Beyond your academic record, certain other materials may have to be submitted such as: SAT Scores, Letter(s) of recommendation, Health Records, Evidence of personal qualities, educational and career objectives, and bsic skills in visual arts (ie. your graphics design /arts classes).

You should discuss these matters with your schools vocational counselor. Your school must have programs in Drafting and Art. Take as many as you can fit in. Computer Classes of course are a must. The counselor will have many suggestions on how you should shape your secondary school activities to prepare for college admission.

In summary the first step is to consider two or three careers, including architecture, that interest you. Then you need to research which colleges offer the best training in these fields, and match your academic and extracurricular choices to the admissions requirements at those schools.

Good luck and have fun!
