Throughout eleventh grade, we continue to monitor the progress of our juniors and encourage them to maintain the most rigorous course of study that they can handle. Juniors are invited to attend presentations by college admission representatives from across the nation, our district’s college night in the spring, Mock Admissions presentations (re: private college information) in fall and spring, and presentations from our local community colleges throughout the year. Our ROP coordinator is available in the college and career center, offering practical career training programs for students age 16 and above. All juniors are encouraged to sign up for the PSAT in October and additional practice SAT/ACT exams during the spring semester.
During the spring, we meet with all juniors in small groups to review graduation and college requirements, college admissions, testing dates, and course selection for senior year. You can find the powerpoint for this presentation below in "other useful links". During the spring, we offer a junior Parent Coffee where we discuss graduation, college requirements, ROP opportunities & post high school options. Throughout the spring we meet with juniors on an individual basis to discuss summer school and to support their graduation plans.
During the month of March, counselors meet with groups of juniors to plan classes for senior year and to discuss the college application process. You can access the presentation for the class of 2021 and the junior meeting packet below or on the Class of 2021 canvas page. Juniors who have not had their junior counseling meeting have the option to either join a GoogleMeet with the UHS counselors for a live presentation or to view the materials in the Module "Junior Planning Meeting". If you opt out of the live presentation, please review the presentation and utilize the course selection form to plan your courses for 12th grade. Once you have completed the form, please use the "Course Entry Instructions" pdf to assist you in entering courses. Each student will log on to their my.iusd.org account to enter their course requests. Please be sure to add period preferences such as "no period 0" "open 6" or "open 5" when entering courses.
