If you are interested in becoming an astrophysicist, concentrate on classes in mathematics and science (especially physics). If they are available, take classes at an advanced level to better prepare for challenging college courses. English and speech classes are also important because astrophysicists must write up their results, communicate with other scientists, and lecture on their findings. Finally, make sure you are comfortable working with computers either by taking a computer science class or by exploring on your own.
