Important tips for the first year of High School

The choices you make starting in high school will be hard to change. These choices will have a lasting effect on the options open to you after high school. , so put your best foot forward from day one (1) and give the world the best you have so the best will come back to you!

1.   Select your courses carefully. Your counselor can help you make the right choices for the Pre-College Curriculum and your elective courses which should help you with a career goal or plan.

2. Begin reviewing colleges and their requirements such as required grade point averages, ACT and SAT scores and what that specific college offers in various areas: pre-medicine, education (teaching), anthropology, etc… Almost every post-secondary school has a website with admission information. You may need to consider taking additional math, science or foreign language classes to meet college requirements.

3. Start a personal data sheet or resume and record your activities, in and out of school. The "activities" part of college applications will be a breeze if you've kept a record all during high school. It is also a good idea to begin volunteering and experiencing various careers.

4.  Make the most of your education-The most important reflection of this will be your final grades reported on your transcript at the end of your freshman year. You will not be able to change them.

5.  Attendance-  Make sure you are in class each day.  This is not only a reflection of your work ethic, but also allows you to be successful in the class
