Use this guide to help you transition into summer while you stay focused on your interests and goals. 

Here is a May to-do list to help you successfully transition into summer.
Seniors
  • Keep your grades up and complete your assignments with effort. The learning you do now will position you for college-level work.
  • If you have a learning or physical disability, or health issue, request college accommodations now.
  • Be timely in your response to information requests from your prospective college so you get priority for orientation, course choices, housing, and the like.
  • Avoid senioritis and disciplinary issues that could impact your college matriculation. Graduation is so close!
Juniors
  • Register and prepare for the SAT or the ACT or plan a retake if needed.
  • Ask two academic junior year teachers for recommendations and be sure to discuss your choices with us first.
  • Continue researching your list and participate in virtual or in-person tours and information sessions.
Sophomores
  • Make plans to take both a practice SAT and ACT this spring or early summer to determine which test is a better fit for you. Share your results with us so we can create a testing plan for the coming year.
  • Work with us to make a list of activities so you can evaluate and see if you may want to pursue an additional interest this summer or next year.
All Students
  • Finalize summer plans and do something interesting and meaningful in line with your interests and goals. You can do independent projects, online or in-person volunteering, work or intern, or take a course. We can help you come up with ideas.
  • Stay committed to planning ahead for long-term essays and papers, and tests. End the year strong academically.
