Planning for College
Begin creating your Activities Résumé
Organize all of your extracurricular activities since 9th grade. Include all activities
in both school and community. Be sure to update each year! Make sure you
continue to stay active in a variety of activities throughout high school. This is
VERY important in college admissions as it can distinguish you from other
applicants.
Get started now if you haven’t already, because junior English teachers will
assign the activity résumé in the spring!
Quality is so much more important than quantity!
Leadership, community service, and being well-rounded are very important to
colleges and scholarship committees!

Taking the College Entrance Tests
SAT-I is the SAT. Plan to take it in the spring of your junior year!
http://sat.collegeboard.org
SAT-II is a shorter test for particular subject areas; some colleges may
require these. Check your possible future college choices and plan to
take them at or near the end of your junior year if at all possible.
http://sat.collegeboard.org/about-tests/sat-subject-tests
ACT is a standardized reasoning test that evaluates students in English,
math, science & social studies. For some students, it is a good
alternative to the SAT. And ACT scores will convert to SAT
scores! www.act.org

its full functioning power!
3.Get organized – keep a calendar and map out
those long term assignments.
4.Have fun – because you’ve earned it!
And remember, if the going ever gets rough,
