Freshman and Sophomore Years

College Bound Planning - Freshman & Sophomore Year

Freshman Year

  1. Take as many college preparatory classes as possible.
  2. Establish the strongest possible academic record.
  3. Select activities, both formal and informal, in school and outside of school, which will permit you to broaden your horizons. Extracurricular activities are important when applying for scholarships.
  4. If chosen for district or state academic rallies, do your best. Placement in state competition is certainly a strength in scholarship competition.
  5. Start exploring career and college options. Talk to your family or school counselor about career and college desires.

Sophomore Year

  1. Continue the steps from freshman year.
  2. Intensify your exploration of colleges and careers by visiting schools or by writing for information.
  3. Colleges will send you scholarship and admission information if you ask.
  4. Take the PLAN. It is imperative that you do your best and take the test with seriousness. Preliminary tests such as PLAN and PSAT prepare you for future tests such as the ACT and SAT.
  5. Keep up your GPA and extracurricular activities
