What should I be thinking about in 10th grade?

1. Continue getting excellent grades. Your grades and your ACT score (when you take it) will form your index score which will determine, in some cases, whether you can be admitted to the college of your choice.

2. Take Honors and AP classes when you can.

3. Continue to develop and seek leadership qualities through service to your school and community. An in-depth quality experience with one or two organizations is better than just getting your name on the rolls of several.

4. Take the PSAT (National Merit Test) in February of your sophomore year.

5. Be aware of classes that you need to take for scholarship consideration (i.e. The Regents’ Scholarship) and to prepare for college—THE #1 PREDICTOR OF GRADUATING FROM COLLEGE IS THE CLASSES YOU CHOOSE TO TAKE IN HIGH SCHOOL.

6. If you know where you want to go to college, make sure you are meeting their admissions requirements. Some competitive colleges and universities have more demanding admissions requirements than the Davis School District graduation requirements.
