Class of 2020!!!
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!!
We are so happy to have you all come back. It is imperative that you don't fall behind academically in your first year in high school, so know you can always come to see your counselor if you need anything. The link to make an appointment is provided below.
Things to Do
- Log in to Naviance. Here is the link to Naviance https://connection.naviance.com/family-connection/auth/login/?hsid=alliancehsa Naviance is full of useful information about a wide range of topics including potential colleges, careers, and anything that will prepare you for life during and after high school.
- Create a list potential college majors that you would like to pursue. It's never too early to research what academic areas of study interest you.
Create a list of schools that you are interest you to find out if they fit the qualities you consider in a school. Find out their admission requirements, location, size, campus life, cost, retention and graduation rates, population and academic programs (make sure they offer the major that you are interested in pursuing).
Make a "Brag Sheet". Write down accomplishments, activities and work experiences. This will be an important part of your college and scholarship applications.
Sign-up for extracurricular activities. Consider clubs at school, leadership roles, or involvement in your religious group or community.
