How to be a Successful Sophomore

Step 1 – Be sure to enroll in the most challenging classes you can.

In order to be prepared for college level work, you should enroll in 4 years
of English, 4 years of math, 3 years of science, and 3 years of social
studies. Most colleges also expect to see 2 to 3 years of the same
foreign language and at least one year of a visual or performing art.

Step 2 – Take PSAT – the practice college entrance exam.

PSATPSAT:  Wednesday, October 19, 2016

All sophomores will take this test. Your score will provide colleges and universities with information about your abilities and interests.

The score you earn when you take it in your junior year will enter you in the National Merit Scholarship competition. For more information, go to: www.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt

Step 3 – Research different colleges, universities, and/or trade schools.

Attend one of the CCSD four field trips to CSN (College of Southern Nevada)  in March or April. Students will tour the campus and interact with the current CSN students.  They will also investigate the possibilities that CSN offers.  College of Southern NV offers over 180 degree and certificate options, a 23-1 student to faculty ratio and boasts a student population of over 35,000. CSN operates three main campuses and eight Academic and Learning Centers as well as many online options providing accessibility to all Nevada residents.

Colleges, the military, and trade schools send representatives to Southeast Tech every week. Listen to the announcements. Check the Calendar section of our website, then on College Planning Calendar for more information. See Mrs. Smith in the counseling office if you have questions or make an appointment with Mr. Galyean in the Career Center to meet with the college reps.

Step  4 – Keep your grades up!

In addition to your grades, get involved in a club, activity or sport! Colleges want to see diverse students that participate in multiple opportunities.
