Planning on going to college for 2-D graphic design

I have a few questions for college. I am in 9th grade, so I have w hile to go, but I want to be ready. So I have a few questions.

1.) What courses should I take in highschool to prepare me for college?
2.) What College courses should I take?
3.) Am I good enough to Major in Graphic Design? (Here is a sample of my work)

P.S. I use Open-Source Gimp 2.6

You might probably get better advice about graphic design on another forum.

But if you want to do graphic design then look to doing high school courses like visual arts, any kind of design course (design and technology, graphics design itself) not sure what courses are on offer at high schools around your area. Try to take courses that are creative. Computer classes are also helpful.

There's plenty of college courses around for graphic design, just do a google search. I think your biggest decision to make is whether you want to do print or digital media. Everything is going digital, so you might want to consider a digital media course.

It's still early to ask yourself whether you're good enough or not for something.

Look in magazines and design blogs. Graphics design is about visual communication, and sometimes communicaiton is more effective when things are more simple.

Here are some cool inspirational sites to check out:
