Road Map for April: Freshmen

Your first high school final exams are coming up and they’re an important opportunity to boost your grades for the year.  As you start to prepare, check out the “Better Grades in Less Time” workshop on April 22 at the Hill Center.  Smith Rivas can give you some valuable structure and strategies for a strong finish.

In addition to your academics, consider doing some career exploration this spring and summer.  If your high school uses Naviance, it has interest inventories and other tools for identifying career fields you might want to consider.  (If you need log-in information, ask your school counselor.)  I also like this interest inventory and these resources on majors and careers.  In addition to online research, you can learn about possible study and work options through real-world experience; summer service opportunities are an excellent way to gain that exposure.
