High school students interested in a career as an astronaut
should follow a regular college preparatory curriculum in high
school but should endeavor to take as much work as possible in
mathematics and science (biology, chemistry, physics). Other
important classes include computer science, English, and speech.
NASA requires its astronauts to be proficient in Russian in order
to work with Russian astronauts (or "cosmonauts" as they are known
in Russia) on the International Space Station. Although this
training is provided to astronaut candidates, it wouldn't hurt to
take Russian if it is available.
