    SPS Junior Checklist

    Stay focused – Continue to do well in your courses. Junior year grades are the most important grades and colleges strongly consider your performance this year. Get any extra help that you might need in your courses, continue to talk with your mentors and your counselors, and remember your goal of going to college.

    Select Senior schedule - Make sure that you continue to challenge yourself and take the necessary academic courses.  Senior year is the last chance you have to meet college entrance requirements, so triple check that you will meet them. Remember that college entrance requirements do not necessarily correspond with high school graduation requirements. 

    AP Tests - Register to take any AP tests that you are preparing for during the school year. Talk with your high school counselor if you want more information about what tests are available and how to prepare.

    Scholarships – Start learning how to apply for college scholarships. Visit,, and These sites will connect you with scholarships and help you pay for college. You can apply to scholarships any time in high school, but it is especially important during your junior and senior year.
