Here’s the plan …
Familiarize yourself with college admission requirements.
Explore college search sources:
Take the time to visit some college campuses that you might be interested in. Take a campus tour and gather admission information. Get information from parents, teachers, friends, relatives and other about colleges.
SAT or ACT ? If you have any intention of attending a college or university, you must take a college placement exam. Colleges and universities use placements exams such as the SAT or the ACT in addition to courses taken and grades to determine admission. Students are strongly encouraged to take one of these tests during their sophomore and junior year. Most juniors take an exam in either May or June but some will be taking them earlier (January or March). Some colleges require one or more achievement tests as a part of their entrance requirements. Your results are directly related to your course preparation. Practice tests are available in the computer lab to use when you have completed your other classwork. Please take advantage of the opportunity to use these tests to enhance your scores.
