PRIORITIES FOR YOUR FRESHMAN YEAR
- Your Grades – all end of term and end of year grades earned during high school will show on
your official transcript, which will be sent to all colleges and universities you choose to apply to for admission.
- Explore your interests – get involved!
- Learn to manage your time and your responsibilities on your own. As you move through high school,
you should work to establish a series of habits that allow you to manage your own schedule and workload without
your parents’ assistance. This is an important skill for successfully managing college life.
