Starting high school means mapping out a plan to get from freshman to senior year and eventually to a two- or four-year college.
With the first year of high school behind them, students should start thinking about colleges and careers that might be a good fit and start exploring those areas.
Old enough to legally both drive and work in most states, high school juniors should seek out internships, job shadows and summer jobs that align with the careers they're interested in. Don’t forget to take some time to consider post-secondary opportunities. Visit campuses, take the SAT or ACT, consider career-tech opportunities available at the high school, and find the best fit for you.
Most students spend the start of senior year visiting campuses, narrowing their list and then applying to college or other post-secondary opportunities. Watch the deadlines for applications and scholarships and make sure you identify people who can write you good recommendations. Then work hard! Colleges will want to see that you finished high school strong.
Summer School will be held in two sessions each summer. Summer Session I will begin on the first Monday in June and be held Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM - 12:30 PM, for three weeks. Summer Session II will begin the following Monday and continue Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM - 12:30 PM, for three weeks with the July 4th holiday being a day that summer school is not in session. This holiday means that Summer Session II will end on a Monday.
Please note that summer school attendance is voluntary, and, as such, students are permitted to have only one day of absence or less to earn credit for the summer session. There are no excused absences for summer school.
A list of courses being offered for summer school will be made available in February. Student enrollment will dictate if a course will be offered in summer school. Registration for both summer sessions will be held online in February on a first come, first serve basis. Information will be made available online and via school announcements at the high school, and information will be provided at both the high school and the middle schools during student registration for classes for the following school year.
