When is the SAT?!

Helpful Ways to Prepare for the SAT

What to do your junior year:

  • Study for the SAT! Your SAT score will impact things like meeting graduation requirements, or being admitted to a certain college you want. The better your score, the less likely you will need to take it again later!
  • Have a plan for what you want to do after high school! The sooner you know, the quicker you can work backwards from your end goal. For example: if you want to be a chef, a step backwards could be attending the Pickens Culinary Arts program. If you want to be a lawyer, a step backwards would be law school and attending a four year college. Another step backwards could be to take classes at Community College of Aurora while you are still at Central to save you money while earning college credits. 
  • Meet your counselors if you haven’t already! We are a great resource to help you with your academics, social and emotional struggles, career ideas, or to just be your cheerleader!
