Freshman

Counseling Timeline
  • Challenge yourself academically.  Colleges make admissions decisions based on grades beginning in the freshman year.

  • Get involved in extracurricular activities through school, church and/or the community.  Find something that interests you.  Depth of involvement is more important than being involved in many activities.

  • Take the PSAT when it is offered on campus in October.  This is an important test, so take it seriously.

  • Make a list of all activities, awards, honors, volunteer hours and work experiences. This list will be a “living document” that will be added to annually. It will be invaluable when you complete applications in your senior year.

  • Visit colleges with your family during summer vacation.
