So, you’re a rising 9th grader, your first year of high school! As you begin your high school career, you will adjust to a new building, attend school as the youngest, meet lots of new people, acclimate to the expectations of high school teachers, have an array of clubs and activities in which to participate and make LOTS of new friends!  How exciting!  

This summer, Prepare to START SCHOOL SHARP!

Woohoo!  School is out for the summer so learning can stop!  Right?  Wrong!  Summer time provides the BEST opportunity students have to enrich their academic skills if they desire to get ahead before school begins again or catch up in skills if they ended the school year below average in an area.

A frequent question I am asked is whether a student should take the ACT in addition to the SAT.  The answer is, “Absolutely!”  While the SAT and ACT are very different tests, they both fulfill the same role in the college admissions process.

If you are a 9th grade student this year, you will take the new, redesigned PSAT in October 2015 as a sophomore.  By now you have probably heard that the PSAT and SAT are changing, so I would like to share with you a few of the revisions.

New Year’s resolutions for students
By Carol C. Wood

A resolution is a promise we each make to ourselves, and this time of year most of us are thinking about what we want to be different in 2015 from 2014.  To allow for change we must be willing to honestly assess ourselves and identify what it is in or around us that prohibits us from making those changes we so desire.  Students often need change, too.  So, following are examples of New Year’s Resolutions a student could set.
