Junior Year Information

It is critical that students create a plan for life after high school. Therefore, the focus of work in the junior year is on college planning or other post high school opportunities.

Most juniors are developmentally ready to take on the process of making this important decision. Our objective is to encourage students in the course of self-reflection as they further define their own stated goals for their lives after high school. This can include everything from career exploration, to developing their extra-curricular activities to better align with their stated goals, and/or exploring the many colleges of interest.

What to expect:

Scores: PSAT scores, administered in October, along with transcripts and GPA’s, are used as a baseline for preparation for the college search process and setting a timeline for taking the SAT or ACT in the spring of junior year.

Course planning: Counselors meet with each junior for course selection and advisement for the senior schedule, and to further refine their academic interests in high school and college.

Parent Programs:

Junior Parent Night: Counselors meet with junior parents to review the post high school admissions process and answer questions.
