As a student enters high school, academic achievement and personal development become increasingly important. Opportunities in college, or other educational programs, are available based on academic performance, extracurricular actvities, and personal growth as demonstrated in high school.
Students should focus on their coursework, be consistent in their effort, take challenging classes, and strive to do the best they can. In addition to classes, it is important for students to become involved in activities, either in or out of school, that develop strong social skills, lead to exploration of personal interests, demonstrate initiative, provide service opportunities, and promote responsible and mature decision making.
Middle school was a time for practicing how to be a good student and to explore interests through extracurrciular activities. High School is a time to demonstrate academic abilities, talents, leadership, service, and a desire to achieve. There are many forks in the road in high school; times of choice that have increasingly significant effects on post-secondary opportunities. Think ahead, plan for possibilities, talk to everyone you can think of about your goals, challenge yourself, do your very best as often as you can. Call, email, or come in for a meeting - our top priority is for all students to be excited about their future plans, confident in their skills, and ready to transition to post-secondary education.
