Pivotal Junior Year of High School
Here’s what college-bound high school students can expect in your junior year.
Your junior year in college should be an amazing year of discovery and adventure as you begin thinking more about your future as an adult — where you want to go to college, what you might want to major in, and the types of careers that appeal to you.
Of course, against this great backdrop of self-discovery is also the reality of the pressures associated with tackling tough high school courses, earning good grades, and scoring well on various standardized college admissions tests.
So, yeah, your junior year of high school is perhaps the most pivotal of them all.
