Juniors should be asking teachers for letters of recommendation, updating their resumes on Naviance, and narrowing their college choices. We recommend that they work on their college applications over the summer. Most colleges will open their applications in August. Juniors should have taken the SAT or ACT at least once already. If they have not or are not satisfied with their scores, then they should register for the SAT at
or ACT at
. Both tests are offered in June and ACT is offered in July. The 2019-2020 test cycle begins in August for the SAT and September for the ACT.
Sophomores and freshmen should update their resumes on Naviance. Revising the resume each year helps prevent students from forgetting any information when they must submit their resumes to their colleges or for their teachers/counselors to use in writing their letters of recommendation. Freshmen should complete the Do What You Are survey in Naviance and sophomores should complete the other surveys. These will help students determine possible career paths and identify their learning styles. Naviance is a great resource for researching colleges as well. It is highly recommended that students begin investigating careers and college starting freshman year. This includes visiting colleges.
