Junior planning folders will be distributed during college night in the fall.
Here are some of the items juniors will receive in their folder:
Make sure you sign up to take SAT and/or ACT testing. Students must register electronically for SAT at www.collegeboard.com and the ACT on www.actstudent.org. Check the College Exams page for more information. The Counseling Center also has information on tutoring and test-prep classes.
Juniors often ask how their three year Grade Point Average (GPA) is computed. Look here to learn how it is computed along with an example. Your counselor will be able to provide you with your GPA at the beginning of your Senior year. It is NOT recalculated with senior year grades, although your senior year report cards will be sent to the colleges you are applying to. Corrections due to errors can be made and should be brought to the attention of your school counselor as soon as possible.
Have you made plans to visit colleges yet? Spring is the best time for juniors to do this, while campuses are still filled with their students. We encourage you to use your Naviance account in order to establish a prospective list of schools to visit and attend open houses.
