Road Map for September: Sophomores

This year of high school can be a fun one; you’re past the new-kid phase of freshman year, but the pressures of college admission are not front and center yet.  Still, you may be taking more challenging classes than you did last year and teachers’ expectations are higher for you now.  As you develop your routine for the year, think about what you want to accomplish and how you’re spending your time. Do they match up?  This doesn’t mean you should be studying 24-7.  Include sports, hobbies, service and socializing along with your academic goals.

Did you get involved in some fun activities last year that you’re planning to continue with? There may be new opportunities you can take advantage of.  That doesn’t always mean running for an official leadership position; read this article and consider all the ways you can contribute to the different communities you’re a part of.
