Senior year of high school leads to a lot of “lasts,” but for the first time students will be navigating the college admissions process while trying to make the most of what’s left of high school. Start senior year focused and prepared by knowing what to expect and how to solve any challenges you may face.

Now here are a couple of things to expect senior year, and how to handle them:

Grades STILL matter.

  • Colleges look at grades from all four years of high school. Colleges require
    you to submit a final grade report, and poor grades senior year can keep you out of your dream college. Some colleges have been known to cancel acceptances if your final transcript shows a sharp drop in grades.
  • Stay focused on finishing the year strong and keep grades up. Colleges will notice that you’re working hard and that you have the maturity to handle a college course load.

You will be busy so stay organized.

  • Time management is essential to your success, especially as you dive deep into college applications. Set aside time for studying, homework, and extracurricular activities.
