Sophomore Guidance

Each school year, grade level students meet at least once with their Grade Level Assistant Principal to formulate their individual student educational plan to discuss graduation requirements, credit status, postsecondary goals, and college preparation if a student chooses to apply to college their senior year. 

Administration also visits all grade level students in early spring semester to help navigate class registration for the following school year.

College & Career Counselor visits grade level classrooms to provide informative presentations. Sophomores receive lessons on college and career exploration, understanding their transcript and preparing for junior year. 

A Sophomore/Junior Parent Night will be offered for the first time this school year. Stay tuned for date/time of event. 

College Bound Sophomores!

By the time you’re a sophomore, you may have already realized why preparing for college requires a four-year plan. Your current school work and activities are beginning to pile up, so it’s natural for you not to think about anything but the present. Check back with your counselor and see how you are doing academically and whether you’re on track with your yearly plan.

A couple of recommended sophomore tasks include taking the PSAT to familiarize yourself with the ACT and SAT testing format as well as beginning the search for where you might want to go for college and what you might want to do professionally. This sophomore-year checklist also contains a few links to give you even more information on what you need to know to prepare. 

You don’t need to wait on anyone else to get started with these steps. Keep asking questions and taking initiative!
