High School Juniors

Here's the Top 10 things you need to do in junior year:

  • Talk with parents and friends about academic and career interests.
  • Research careers by talking to a guidance counselor, searching online, and talking to someone in those fields.
  • Find out what type of education is required for the field in which you are interested.

  • Make a list of what's most important to you at college: Price, distance from home, public, private, size, location, activities, academic programs, athletics, etc.
  • Look for colleges and universities that meet your criteria.
  • Make sure to check out costs, financial aid and potential scholarships at each college.
  • Start taking college entrance tests., such as ACT or SAT or both. Many students take them more than once to improve their scores.
  • Meet with college representatives, they are experts about what their college can offer you.
  • By second semester, start narrowing down the list of possible colleges.
  • Visit campuses. That's the best way to get to know a college and whether it's right for you.

High School Sophomores

Things to think about:

  • What do you like to do? What career might match those interests? What do you need to study to enter that field?
  • Make yourself more "marketable." Take more challenging courses if you can, add extracurricular activities and take on some community service work.
  • Visit with your guidance counselor and ask about taking practice entrance tests (like PLAN®).
  • Start checking out colleges.
  • Research scholarships, so you can make sure that to meet the criteria.
