Homepage theme: map, journey, or timeline theme
Homepage Images: map image, journey image (train, boat, car, sail boat), kids ages 12-17 in a journey setting. Other images could be a timeline type of events from left to right.
Homepage Concept: The service of the organization is to provide college and career planning for kids ages 12-18 years old or grades 7-12. The homepage will cater to educators and parents of kids in those groups. The homepage will emphasize the importance of early preparation or planning early to be ready for college and career success. Use a countdown or timer theme would be cool also. Flashing statistics would be nice throughout the homepage. Some statistics may include, "today's eighth graders have exactly 12 quarters to be competitive for admissions into some of the top colleges and universities in the nation." Another statistic would be, "the average on time graduation rate of 4 year universities in the country hovering around 50%." Another statistic would be, "60% of bachelor degree graduates are working somewhere other than their major of study after college graduation."
