Your junior year is a time to research colleges and employment opportunities for life after high school.  We will meet with you in early spring to review your 12th-grade academic schedule, college, and careers, and to answer questions.

    The ASVAB test is a career interest inventory that will be held in November at East Aurora High School during periods 1 through 4.  The test interpretation will be held several weeks later during the 1st and 2nd periods.  A letter will be sent home in October to provide you with information about the assessment.

    All students planning to attend a four-year college or university should plan to take either the SAT l or the ACT in the spring of their junior year, typically in May or June.

    SAT ll's (subject tests) are required by certain colleges.  Students should check the requirements of the schools they are interested in applying to.  SAT subject tests should be taken immediately after the appropriate course has been completed.  In the fall of the senior year, students can re-take the SAT or ACT to increase their chances of college admissions and scholarship money.

     NCAA-bound students who plan to participate in intercollegiate athletics and plan to attend an NCAA Division l or ll college or university need to understand the academic eligibility requirements.  Information and registration are available on the NCAA website at https://web3.ncaa.org/ecwr3/      

     To continue preparing for the future please see the Future Planning for Juniors Booklet.  Each student will be given a hard copy in February.
