All HISD juniors are being enrolled for free to take the SAT college entrance exam during the school day on their campuses on April 16 – and they also qualify for two prep courses at no cost. But time is tight to take advantage of the chance to take practice tests and customized instruction to help boost their scores.
It’s never too soon to start preparing for life after graduation. Energy Institute High School Dean of Students Noelle MacGregor held a workshop during lunch recently to help freshmen create and build resumes in Naviance.
“It’s essential for students to start tracking their activities, community service, and awards now,” said MacGregor. “If they wait until senior year when they start applying for colleges and scholarships, they may forget some of them.”
All HISD high school and middle school students and their parents have access to Naviance on their school website. Students are encouraged to become familiar with Naviance as soon as possible (for information on Naviance, see this page).
