Reminders

COLLEGE CAMPUS VISITS
Contact the admissions office by phone or online in advance for visit date and time. On days such as Columbus Day, most colleges will have large numbers of high school students coming down for “Preview Days.” If you know your intended college major, contact that department and set up a time to meet with them, as well. The more visits you take, the better decision you will make!

GRADES
Colleges will look at your semester grades through junior year for admission purposes, so this is an important year to do your best.

TESTING
SAT will be given at MCHS on April 10, 2018. You will complete all registration here at school. It’s a great idea to also take the ACT. You will have to register for this on your own at actstudent.org. The ACT is given 6 different times throughout the school year and our students typically take it at JJC.
