Sophomore Guide

10th Grade

Your primary efforts in 10th grade should be to work hard, learn all that you can, and make the very best grades you are capable of making.  All sophomores will take the Pre-ACT, an assessment that measures your college readiness and helps you prepare for the ACT.  You are also strongly encouraged to register for the PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test).  This additional practice should strengthen your test-taking skills as you prepare for the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test).  Continue to seek leadership opportunities in the school and community.  Get to know your school counselor.  Continue to seek opportunities for scholarships and summer programs.  Check with your school counselor to make certain your selection of courses for the junior year fits your future plans and academic abilities.
