The year-long Junior College Seminar focuses on the central theme “Implement.” First semester will focus on test prep and test-taking strategies in advance of the PSAT in early fall, and spring standardized testing. Through the remainder of the year, students rely on developed self-awareness and incorporate that information into their college search.
Juniors in this course practice articulating their strengths and completing coursework that helps them prepare for personal statements, essays, and college admissions interviews. Students will use the search platform SCOIR to define their college search and create their college application list.
At the end of this course, students will have key elements of the application process complete and the tools necessary to continue application progress throughout the summer and fall.
