    Not that I'v heard of.
    CompTIA A+ Certification

    They don't list any requirements such as age on the site just recommendations as far as experience

    I don't think there is an age requirement. I read on Tek-Tips a while ago some user calmed he passed the A+ and said he was 16, so i don't know if its true or not but good luck

    certain ones like WGU give you direct credit for them. but sadly most of the ones I looked are very picky.

    It's very possible the college(s) you apply to will look at any certifications and work you've done as part of your extra-curriculars when considering your application. This would be especially true if you're going into an IT-related major, like business or one of the STEM majors. Either way, if you have an interest and would like to be doing something more interesting than burger-flipping or coffee-slinging to earn some extra cash while in school, working on a cert or two definitely won't hurt.
