Preparing for College: 10th Grade

Way to go, you've mastered the first year of high school. Here are some points to think about as a sophomore to help you stay on track and reach your goals:

  • Continue to take challenging core classes.
  • Meet with your school counselor or mentor to discuss colleges.
  • Get involved, join clubs or groups, play sports and volunteer.
  • Take the PLAN® Test when offered, usually in the Fall, a practice test for the ACT test. You may also take the PSAT® in preparation for next year.
  • Get reading. Reading builds vocabulary, improves concentration and boosts writing skills.
