Counselor's Message

Welcome class of 2020!  The past three years you have likely faced numerous challenges and obstacles. This year will be no different. You will be faced with challenging courses, important standardized tests, completing college and scholarship applications, and you will make decisions which will impact the rest of your life. You will inevitably experience a roller coaster of emotions: fear, joy, frustration, surprise, confusion, anticipation, and excitement to name a few. Through the ups and downs, be persistent and focus on the future.

Throughout the year, be diligent in working towards your future goals. You will want to:

  1. Focus on your grades. Studies show that your high school GPA is one of the biggest predictors of college success. Therefore, for most colleges and universities, your GPA will be one of the top admission factors.
  2. Get an early start on college and scholarship applications. College and scholarship deadlines will sneak up on you.  Begin researching information and applying early. 
  3. Continue striving for improved standardized test scores. Your standardized test scores will determine what colleges you are eligible to attend, the scholarships you are eligible to apply for, and the amount of TOPS funding you are eligible to receive.  
  4. Last, but not least, enjoy being a senior. Although the future is important, you do not want to miss out on the many opportunities you will have this year.

This year will be challenging, but it will likely prove to be one of the most exciting years of your high school life. If there is anything I can do for you throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I hope you have a great year!
