  16. Junior year: ACT is offered October, December, February, April, and June ACT score = FREE money for school! Do you have an idea of where you want to go? Visit the college campuses. Are you on track to meet the entrance requirements? Is your GPA where it needs to be? Are you in a club/clubs? Do you hold an office? Are you volunteering with a group? School or otherwise? Are you preparing a resume? Are you saving money? Start looking at colleges’ websites to learn as much as you can about them before visiting so you know what to ask once you get there. Do you know about “study abroad”?

  17. Sophomore year: You may want to take the ACT towards the end of your sophomore year just to see what it’s about. Are you taking classes that meet the high school graduation requirements or classes that meet college entrance requirements?
