Maintain Grades

Make sure you maintain your grades and strive for perfect class attendance.

Take Honors & AP Courses

Take honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses if you feel that you have the bandwidth. It is advised to spread these classes out over all four years instead of taking them during your junior and senior year.

Meet Guidance Counselor

Meet with your guidance counselor at least once per quarter. Discuss your class schedule for the following term and determine which electives to take. Electives such as speech and foreign languages are beneficial to your collegiate career as you can obtain college credit.

Get Involved

Get involved in extracurricular activities. This may include outside clubs, sports or events in the community. Colleges are interested in students who are well rounded and have activities and hobbies outside the classroom.
