Tips for Junior Year
Physical college tours/visits are limited at this time. Most schools
have paused high school representative visits for the 2020-2021school year. Virtual Tours and/or virtual meetings are availableand may be considered toward “tracked demonstrated interest”.
Try to “virtually visit” 2-3 colleges per week and register for tours
when offered. Check “What’s New” section on Naviance for live virtual rep visits at SAHS.
Although many U.S. colleges and universities have switched to
“test-optional” for the 2020-2021 admissions cycle, it is highly recommended juniors prepare for testing. College Board (SAT) and ACT have resumed testing where permitted. Additional dates and sites have been added. Check both sites often for updated schedule. Once posted available seats will fill quickly. Continue to prep for tests using free online resources such as Khan Academy,
Method Test Prep, Kaplan, and many more.
