Senior (12th Grade) Planning

This year not only marks your last year of high school, but it is also the most important time in the college application process.  You will decide on which school to apply to, submit your applications, probably take the SAT or ACT one last time, and explore financial aid and scholarship opportunities.  Colleges will continue to look at your academics and extracurricular activities, so be sure to keep up your grades and stay involved.  
 
 
The college planning process is filled with a lot of deadlines and details that cannot be overlooked, so be sure to work closely with your Guidance Advisor, parent and/or a trusted adult to help you stay on track.  Prospect Guidance Advisors will be meeting with you several times this year to help with the planning process, and you can always schedule time to meet with them one-on-one, or communicate via email and SchoolLoop.
 
Continue to use Naviance Family Connection to request transcripts, update your resume and brag sheet, and finalize your list of target colleges to which you will apply.
