Junior year is most commonly known as the toughest year, academically. With more challenging classes and a head start on post-high school planning, your checklist becomes a little longer. You may start to gain knowledge on various scholarship opportunities and begin searching for colleges and/or jobs. Just a reminder to keep on top of your classes and make sure you are in good standing with your credits. If you are entering your junior year with less than 12 credits, see your counselor so we can discuss some credit recovery options. Beginning junior year, you are eligible to take dual enrollment courses (up to 24 total credits). Discuss options with your counselor! You will also take the ACT (standardized test) this year in April.
