Freshman Year College Preparation Checklist

Sophomore year students enter into the phase of testing, and practice is the theme. Practices for tests. Practices for a future career. Practice saving. If a student struggles to stay motivated, talk with them about what schools they can afford and how much scholarship they may need. Set a goal together, and help them remember it when they need a motivation to work hard. Here is a Sophomore year college preparation checklist with a few things students can do to prepare.
