Welcome to Sophomore Year!
Each 10th grade student is paired with a counselor who will work with them for the next three years. This will provide the opportunity for the student and guidance counselor to form a close relationship. The 10th-grade seminar is focused on each student's personal interests and values, personality, and impact on academic and personal decisions. 10th graders are asked to do an interest inventory to expose them to academic and career options based on students' personal strengths. Individual course planning with each 10th grade student takes place in February. The course planning guide is on the website and criteria-based AP course enrollment information is sent out to all families. A parent presentation for standardized testing (PSAT, SAT, and ACT) is offered. In addition, a small group parent presentation about “making the most out of high school” is offered.
Here are some suggestions for a successful Sophomore year:
- Keep your grades up.
- Put effort into extracurricular activities.
- Begin thinking about your post-secondary plans.
