College preparation begins with your high school schedule

The first step on the road to college begins with the courses students take in high school. The first thing colleges look at is the high school transcript. It is an important document in the admissions and scholarship process. Schools look for four years of solid course work in a basic curriculum. Although standardized tests are important in the application process, thehigh school transcript measures a student’s ability and motivation over four years. Your student’s registration for next year’s classes has already begun. Please review their schedule with them when they receive them back in the spring and contact the Guidance Office if you have any questions.

 

What do admissions officers look for in a transcript?

Generally, admissions counselors are looking to evaluate:

Grades: Are they on an upward trend?

High School: What are its academic qualities?

G.P.A.: Cumulative Grade Point Average and Current Grade Point Average

Test Scores: SAT I, ACT, SAT II. How does the student compare to other students from different schools?

Senior Year: Is the student taking challenging academic curriculum and being successful?

 

SAT information

We encourage college-bound students to take their SATs the spring of their junior year. Students register by mail or online at www.collegeboard.comand take the test in the public high school nearest them. We encourage even those students who do not intend to go to college to take the SATs, since test results are honored by schools for many years.

Students with Learning Disabilities that would like to request SAT or ACT accommodations, please see Mr. Kabakjian or Mrs. Hunsberger to review the process.

 

Junior year: College visits and planning

Students should have several colleges selected from information they have researched. Now it is time to prepare for campus visits. Selecting a college takes research. It begins with the college guidebooks, college publications, computer resources, people resources, college fairs and open houses, and the campus visit. It is important to keep files on each for future reference. Below are Internet resources for you to explore and refer to:
