12th Grade Planner
Start Early, Finish Strong!

Fall Semester

Keep studying!
You want to avoid “senioritis” – a drop in motivation and, consequently, grades, that is sometimes experienced by seniors.

Talk to your counselor about possibilities for concurrent enrollment (taking college-credit courses while you’re still in high school).

Save your money!
It’s a good idea to start planning for those unexpected costs of college.College Savings Calculator

Important updates on efforts to enhance the security of the SAT®, continue to ensure the validity of scores delivered to colleges and universities, and protect the honest students who make up the vast majority of test takers.
There is now a comprehensive set of policies to further increase security and preserve the integrity of SAT scores. As always, SAT is working to strike the right balance between thwarting those seeking an unfair advantage & providing opportunities

These new measures include:

Providing the names of test prep companies and individuals we suspect of stealing and receiving secure test content to law enforcement and other government agencies in the US and abroad.

Prohibiting individuals from taking the SAT, SAT Subject Tests™, and Advanced Placement® exams when we conclude they have gained or attempted to gain or share an unfair advantage on any College Board test.

New NCAA Eligibility Center Website Opened in November 2016!
Go to NCAA.org/playcollegesports or Follow on Twitter @NCAA_EC

This site will make the registration process easier for college-bound student-athletes and improve the accuracy of information our team looks at when evaluating students.

Students who previously registered with the old site will have their accounts automatically transitioned over to the new site. Their login credentials will remain the same. However, additional questions may be required to complete before students can request final amateurism starting April 1 of their final high school year.

WHAT’S NEW ON THE WEBSITE

Two different account options
