Freshmen and Sophmores

College Planning – Freshmen

Fall

  • Work with your counselor to put together a four year academic and activities plan.
  • Learn about and take advantage of all the resources that are available at Christian Heritage to support you in your learning (i.e. meeting with teachers; working with your advisor; extra help sessions; time-management and study skills workshops, etc.)
  • Take advantage of the PSAT prep sessions that are taught in your math and English courses.
  • Attend the PROBE College Fair
  • Take the Learning Styles Inventory offered during a Student Life session and learn new ways that can help you be successful.

Spring

  • Work with your counselor to plan your courses for next year. Choose courses that will stretch your thinking, but will allow you to balance your academics with your activities and campus involvement.
  • Prepare your own questions for the Alumni Panel so that you can learn about the college process from the prospective of Christian Heritage alumni.
  • Take advantage of the PSAT interpretation session to learn how you can better prepare yourself for future admission testing.
  •  Begin making plans to apply for programs, camps, or jobs that require selection before May or June.

Summer

  • Use summer as a time to do things that you don’t have time to do during the school year that enrich your life. Summer is a great time for a job, a volunteer experience, camp, or learning a new skill.
  • Begin a journal if you do not keep one already. A journal is a great place to write about yourself and reflect on what is important to you.

  • Choose some leisure reading that interests you.
