Here are a few things you should do to prepare for senior year:

  • Take or retake the SAT/ACT. SAT free practice is available via Khan Academy. Remember to link your Khan Academy account to your College Board account for individualized practice. 
  • Finalize your college list. If possible, visit 2 or 3 colleges that interest you. Don't limit you list to school based on your friends choices. Do what's best for YOU!
