Organizing a resume helps you to market yourself, and show any strengths and weaknesses you may have. The school counselor is available to help you develop and improve this resume.

Sophomores: Now is the time to study and prepare for the ACT/SAT of your choice. Spring or summer is a great time to take the test for the first time, and gauge your strengths and weaknesses. After the first time, you can sign up for tutoring or join a prep class to work on those areas.
Juniors: You have already taken the ACT/SAT test of your choice. You need to continue testing several times in order to guarantee success and a score you are pleased with. Sign up to take either test many times throughout your junior year, so you will have this completed before the start of senior year.
Seniors: By now, you have taken either the ACT or SAT test several times. The October ACT/SAT will be the last opportunity most of you have to achieve the score you want for your college applications! It is imperative you do not forget to sign up for September and October test dates!
