TAKE THE PSAT
The Practice SAT Exam (PSAT) will give you chance to see what the SAT will be like. The results will let you know the areas where you're kicking butt and the areas where you might need some extra studying and support. Once you have your results, head on over to Khan Academy for free study materials.
Continue to take advantage of the many opportunities available to you at East Side and during the summer. Colleges will be excited to see that you've made a long-term commitment to something and it's a chance for you to build a community, project, or other opportunity over the course of multiple years.
TOUR COLLEGE CAMPUSES
One of the great things about East Side is that you will have chances to tour colleges throughout your time in high school. Visiting campuses is a great way to get a chance to see how a college feels and start to figure out what kind of environment you want to seek out. Take a few notes on the tours to help you remember the things that stand out to you.
