Grade 12 CHALLENGE yourself academically through your last year in high school. Take the SAT and ACT again if needed. Attend college application workshops in H101 during summer and fall. Make an appointment with College Counselor at least one month prior to application deadlines. When choosing a college, carefully consider your interest and abilities, and research financial aid and your goals. Be realistic. Applications should be completed no later than the end of the first semester. Work on financial aid and scholarships during the 2nd semester. Finish the year on a positive note. Colleges expect students to continue with a rigorous course load and strong academic performance through the end of the school year. Make sure final transcripts are sent to the college to which you are attending. GET IT DONE!
