About us

As President of St. Charles Community College (SCC) and a parent of five daughters, with two still needing to make decisions about college and career, I am pleased and proud to have SCC create and sponsor the BeReadyForTheFuture.com website for students, parents and educators.  It is sometimes difficult to know what questions to ask about college and career, particularly if this is the first time down that path. This website makes it easy for students and parents to explore college and career options and to prepare for both regardless of choice of college or career.


All journeys begin with first steps. As an educator and a parent I am excited to share the resources at BeReady with everyone searching for the right questions to ask and the answers about college readiness, college choice, affording college, and about the life changing journey from high school through college to career.

Everyone has a path. We want you to BeReady for yours.  May your journey be a good one.
