Sophomore Year

  • Things to do in 10th Grade:

    • Plan a rigorous course schedule.
    • Keep your grades up.
    • Get more involved! College are looking for students who have a variety of interests: though it is better to have depth in a few activities than to have less depth in many activities.
    • Consider a leadership role in one of your extracurricular activities.
    • Keep a list of your activities and involvements inside and outside of school: Volunteer!
    • Which classes are your favorites?  Research careers which are in line with your interests and talents.
    • Establish strong time management skills. Build your vocabulary and continue to improve your reading and writing.
    • Visit college web sites, attend local college visits, collect college literature. This will jump start your junior year!
    • Prepare for standardized tests.  But remember, some colleges are test optional.
      • The PSAT10 will be given to all students interested in late Winter/early Spring. From those results, you can study skills you are deficient in. 
      • Use Khan Academy to start studying now.
      • Take a practice SAT and ACT to see which test you like best. Prepare for that exam. 
      • Pick up an SAT or ACT study book at the library/book store.
      • ***Please Note- Students will not take the actual SAT/ACT until winter/spring of Junior year, so there is a lot of time to study.
