Junior year can be a busy one. Students may find themselves with an increased workload that includes higher level Honors and AP courses. Additional testing for college eligibility begins with the PSAT, SAT Reasoning and/or ACT with writing, SAT Subject Tests, and AP exams. Some students may find their social life and extracurricular participation is broadening and the time to begin post-high school planning has begun. Students are starting to think about potential colleges, careers and majors.
During this time the priority should be to pass classes required for graduation, fulfill college subject eligibility requirements, earn the best grades possible for college eligibility and continue to nurture intellectual curiosity and good study habits for the future.
Below you will find some key resources to help you through this year. Specifically note the Junior Grade Level book, which provides students and parents with a wealth of information from graduation requirements to post-high school planning.
