College Planning

College Admissions

The best preparation lies in planning ahead.  Reviewing admissions standards for your post-secondary destination can help you select the courses you need to meet your goals.  The harder you work in high school, the more prepared you will be for life after high school.

What do Colleges Look For:

  • Academic Record — Grades are important all 4 years.  The level of difficulty in your course choices matters too!  Remember — your GPA calculation begins your freshman year!
  • College Entrance Exam Scores
  • Essays
  • Extra-curricular activities and community service
  • Recommendations
  • Interviews
