College Planning Timeline

College planning can start at a young age, but you definitely want to start planning in more detail when you reach high school.  Here is a link to a suggested timeline to follow for each year of high school. 


Testing Information

Students planning on applying to 4-year colleges or universities should plan on taking the SAT and ACT exams in their Junior year.  These are standardized tests that many colleges require as part of their admissions decisions.  These tests may be take more than once and colleges will look at the highest scores earned.
