Senior Information Guide

Getting Ready for Next Year? Seniors and anyone else, too.

Class of 2023, what should you do this summer to be prepared? Here is a short list to get you rolling:


  • Visit Colleges. Determine the size, type, cost, location that is right for you.
  • Make a list of colleges that appeal to you. What are their requirements and deadlines?
  • Create your FSA ID for you and your parent so you can submit your FAFSA early.
  • Build your Activities Chart/Resume. Any college application, scholarship or job will need this. Who are you on paper?
  • Save photos, documents, brochures showing how you have been involved and engaged.
  • Get a job. This shows your level of responsibility.
  • Research future careers. What would you like to do in your future, and what will it take to get there?
  • Ask for letters of recommendation. Teachers, employers, pastors etc. are great people to ask. Give them your Activities Chart and your letter will be much better!

Taking these steps over the summer will save you an incredible amount of effort later. You will be so glad you prepared!
