Junior Information

Dear Juniors,
 
Before you know it, it will be your turn to walk across that stage and receive your diploma!  We are excited to continue working with you over the next year to help you determine and pursue your post-gradiation plans.  It is important to continue taking all classes and grades seriously, and reach out for assistance if you are struggling.  Also, you will want to begin considering standardized test taking if you are thinking about attending a 2 or 4 year college after graduation.  If you are not sure what you would like to pursue after high school, your counselors are here to help!  We can assist you in researching career pathways, majors of study, academic institutions, military, etc.  Please come by to meet with us so we can narrow down a plan for you as you enter into your senior year of high school.
 
Sincerely,
 
The BLHS Counseling Department

Junior/Senior Handbook

11th Grade College Planning Checklist
Standardized Testing

All students who are planning to attend a post-secondary school should take the SAT and/or ACT.   

*In the spring semester, BLHS will administer either the SAT or ACT to each 11th grade student for free during the school day.  During your IGP meeting your counselor will ask you which test you prefer to take*

It is ultimately your responsibility to find out what test is needed for the technical school, college, or university you plan to attend or you are interested in possibly attending.   Please check with the tech school, college or university you are interested in attending for their SAT/ACT requirements, or any placement test they require.

After your BLHS testing administration, you are responsible for registering for future testing sessions.  It is recommended that you take the SAT or ACT (or a combination of both) more than once, as colleges superscore your highest scores across all testing dates.
