Surviving SENIORITIS………Tips for keeping seniors on track

  • Maintain a challenging course load. Urge them to take the most rigorous courses available, including AP courses (for which they can earn credit at many colleges).
  • Enjoy their senior experience—responsibly. Celebrate the last year of school: You may enjoy attending football games; going to the prom; and participating in graduation festivities, clubs, sports, and volunteer work.
  • Commit to an internship or career-focused job, these things may help you make informed decisions about your education and career goals; or try out college early by taking a class at a local college in a subject that interests you or in which you may excel.
  • Keep a calendar of their activities and deadlines(tests, college applications, senior-year events, extracurricular, and so on). Caution DO NOT overextend yourselves.
  • Not obsess over the admissions process to the point that everything else, including grades, suffer. It's all about balance and making the right choices.
