Your best resource is the college you plan to attend. Visit the college's website to find scholarships for freshmen.
College-bound juniors should be planning ahead! Put these on your "to do"list for the summer and fall.
1)Take the ACT or SAT during the Fall.
- 2)Prepare a high school resume.
- 3)Seriously think about which colleges you would like to attend.
- 4)Know your current GPA. Colleges will admit you based on the GPA you have earned in grades 9, 10, and 11. Your junior year grades are VERY important.
- 5)Continue to be involved in school, community, and church organizations. Quality involvement is the key; admissions committees are looking to see WHAT you have actually done in the organizations.
- 6)Take college visits.
- 7)Think about teachers, coaches, and other adults from whom you will need letters of recommendation.
