The College and Career counselor will visit one of your classes in December to discuss college and career planning.
See below for a basic junior year timeline:
- Keep working on your GPA. Grades matter.
- Make sure you have all of the classes you need to graduate. If you are planning on attending 4 year university, you may need four years of math, Algebra I and higher. Even if only 3 years are required, taking the 4th year of math will better prepare you for college math.
- Take the ACT second semester, if not before. Register here.
- Take advantage of the ACT preparation classes. Also check the ACT Information link on this site.
- Research career interests, colleges, and other post secondary options through Missouri Connections and other sites on the College and Career Website.
- Sign up in the guidance office to visit with college admissions counselors during the Spring. Scheduled visits are posted on this site as well as on the bulletin board across from the main office, and outside the Career Center.
- Take summer school if necessary.
- If you are completing the A+ Program, start your tutoring hours now. See Mrs. Nielsen if you aren't sure if you are eligible.
- Research scholarships.
- Consider attending a summer program at an area university. Click here for opportunities on this site.
- Think about who might write a letter of recommendation for you. Use Missouri Connections to create a resume.
- Over the summer, plan some college visits. Juniors who are planning on attending SCC when they graduate are allowed to take a practice Math Assessment Test at SCC in order to better prepare for the assessment their senior year. This is done on a walk-in basis. Fill out the application and tell the staff that you are taking the test for practice. It is in Room 133 in the Student Center. The contact number is 636-922-8629.
