Step One: What to Be Doing Grades 9-11

 Please click the link for grade level by grade level breakdown of information.  Year-by-Year
Believe it or not, your choices in 9th grade can make a big difference in what colleges you can realistically get into as a senior.  Doing the right things now will pay off in the future .... here's how.
What classes you take -- starting as early as 9th grade -- can make a big difference in being able to both get into college and getting into the college that you want to attend.  Be sure to talk with you guidance counselor as you're making your choices but here are some core ideas:
  • Take more than what's required;
  • Challenge yourself in your areas of strength or interest;
  • Take electives that either (1) have some application to a career you're interested in, or (2) bring you joy and fulfillment.
 
This CollegeBoard article will give you a solid foundation:  High School Classes Colleges Look For.
 
But do your homework!  Each college will list what their academic requirements are.  Check out CollegeBoards College Search or use your Naviance account.  
 
Planning early means success later on.
