Now that your student has completed their first year of high school, it’s time to focus more intently on the college search process. It’s also important to continue strengthening their academic preparation.
The tenth grade year is often the most difficult academically, and it is critical to maintaining a good class rank and high grade point average. Be sure your student is taking challenging courses, including AP/Pre-AP classes. Ask your student’s guidance counselor if their school will be offering the PSAT. The test is good practice for the SAT, and also opens up scholarship opportunities for the nation’s top PSAT scorers.
Continue researching and exploring colleges, including admission requirements. Consider visiting campus and exploring colleges if you haven’t done so already. If your student is not ready for a formal campus tour, choose any activity that will get them on college campuses like athletic events, summer camps, the Maverick Speakers Series, or Maverick Experience.
