Ready or not, college application prep season is underway for high school juniors and there is a lot to do already. By now you should be thinking about:

  • Testing: Which test are you going to take: the ACT or SAT? If you don’t know yet, email me at!
    • -On-campus ACT is February 25th
    • -On-campus SAT is March 25th
  • Senior Course Selection: Do you already know your intended college major? Don’t know yet? Now is the time to think about your interests.
  • Your Primary Extracurricular: Is it impressive enough? Have you shown leadership or excellence? If not, now is the time to put a plan in place to make your accomplishments stand out.
  • Looking at universities and colleges you are interested in. All have a Net Price Calculator (usually housed under student aid).
