Dear Arizona Student,
Congratulations on taking the next step in your education, but don’t think of high school graduation as the finish line; look at it as the starting point.
The Arizona Diamondbacks support your pursuits of higher education or career training, but we know that in order for you to achieve your dreams, you’ll have to work hard and be committed in furthering your education – and that pre-planning starts now. Just as our ballplayers work together to win ballgames and rely on support and encouragement from our fans, you have people all around you who believe in you and your potential and are here to see you through, too.
Every member of the D-backs would tell you their dream of playing professional baseball started early, and so they took the appropriate steps to put themselves in a position to achieve that goal. The same mindset will help you realize your dreams, too, so it’s never too early to start planning and preparing for the life you want after high school.
Use this site as your guide to work with your family to plan and prepare for the variety of opportunities that lie ahead for you. A college education or vocational training is vitally important, and they are options for every student. But you have to take proactive steps to get there.
Good luck, and remember, don't ever give up on your dreams. All things are possible. And don't be afraid to ask for help along the way!
