Check out the Job posting board outside the Guidance Office. Working after school is a great way to save up for books and other educational expenses.JUNIORS:1) What can make you stand out on a college application. Look to become involved in school and community organizations. Two or three activities with progressive responsibilities speaks volumes to Admissions Officers. Consider a leadership role within an organization!2) College tours and campus visits can be scheduled throughout the state and country. Think about spending some time visiting a campus sometime this fall. You have three educational days, use them wisely!3) Volunteer! There are numerous volunteer opportunities in our area. Volunteering opens doors for future work, communicates interest in a particular area, helps those who need it, and has intrinsic benefits.4) College Entrance Exams - Consider taking the SAT or ACT this spring. I recommend taking both! Visit www.collegeboard.com or www.actstudent.org for more information about the test including registration, deadlines, score reporting, and sample questions.
