  • 9th – 11th most important for grades because you will be applying to colleges in the early fall of 12th grade
    • Every class, every credit matters. Even electives.
    • Would you want admissions offices to see those interims? If not, make sure they improve by the end of the year for final grades because the final grades are what get printed on your transcript!
  • Discipline Record --> Counselor Page

    • Every college asks your counselor to check off whether or not you’ve ever been suspended. If yes, we have to explain why.
    • Cell phone violations look silly to college admissions reps --- it looks like you won’t be able to follow simple campus rules.
  • Build a resume starting NOW! 
    • Volunteering/community service is more than just your SSL graduation requirment
    • Get involved in an activity and stick with it
    • DO something, anything that will make you more than a name on a page
    • Jobs and colleges want more than just grades!!!
    • PUT IT ALL IN Career Cruisng!
