Class of 2020

The One Thing Your SOPHOMORES Should Do Right Now…
Surround themselves with the right people
Courtesy of the 2018 ACT February Newsletter

Students listen to you.
That’s why we’ve identified the high school counselor as one of the four people students should add to their support network.
High school is a formative time in a student’s life. A lot of critical, life-changing decisions will be made. This is why it’s important for them to surround themselves with people who want to see them succeed.
In addition to their school counselor, students should include family members, a mentor, and friends in their support network.
It’s important for sophomores to do this now. The sooner they think about college and career – and gather the necessary support – the less stressed, the more excited, and the better prepared they’ll be later on.
