Juniors - Now is the time **********************

Now is the time for Juniors to be making college visits, registering for SATs and... writing their college essay.

This is the list of Common Application essay prompts as well as other prompts that can help a student get their creative juices flowing.

Colleges may have institutional-specific essay requirements, some vague and some precise, so as you narrow down your list of colleges you will apply to check on what they require in an essay.

Attention Juniors

All juniors are encouraged to take the ACT college placement test. It can be used in place of the SAT at virtually all colleges and universities and some students find it to be a better test for their skills. For more information on the ACT click here. Go to www.actstudent.org to register.
