Academic counselors meet with all freshmen to create a 4-year plan with students.This process helps students to develop goals for after high school and plan high school classes. Counselors will meet with students yearly to update their four year plans.
Tips for freshmen:
Academic counselors will meet with 10th graders to update their 4-year plans and check back in with students regarding their post-secondary goals.
Tips for sophomores:
- Start getting serious about extracurriculars—pick the 2 or 3 you like the most, preferably ones where you could see yourself moving toward leadership positions, and invest some real effort in them.
- What you do over the summer matters. Prepare to take advantage of an academic, volunteer or professional opportunity. Ideally, this should be a project or program that you can return to next summer.
- Begin standardized test preparation for the PSAT. Not only is it invaluable SAT prep, but also it’s the key to becoming a finalist for the prestigious National Merit Scholarships, which not only provide money for college, but also guarantee the attention of admissions officers. Consider prepping for the SAT.
- Find a way to get involved with some form of community service. Community service isn’t just something to pad a resume. It can be a fulfilling activity that takes you out of the environment of high school, and allows you to focus on helping other people. It’s not just good for job and college applications, it’s good for your mental health.
Counselors will meet with 11th graders to update their 4-year plans and connect with them about their academic and career goals for after graduation.

Tips for juniors:
- Maintaining your grades during your junior year is important!
- Now is the time to really focus on your career and college research. Meet with your academic counselor and the Career and College Center counselor to investigate community college, vocational opportunities, and/or 4-year colleges.
- Visit community college and 4-year university campuses if possible.
- If you haven't already, create a resume of all the activities you have participated in in high school. Include things like clubs, sports, community service, and any jobs you've had. This list will come in handy next year when you are applying for college and scholarships.
