- Just a thought...
I asked a wise man, "Tell me, in which field could I make a great career?" He said with a smile, "Be a good human being. There is a lot of opportunity in this area, and very little competition."
Only three months left of this school year. It's time to make lists and check them twice.
FYI: Juniors are taking the ASVAB at 8 a.m. on March 16. The ASVAB is the best career exploration program. Students can explore all their options by understanding their skill sets, identifying their interests and exploring the available data.
JUNIORS will also take the Free ACT! March 23, 8 a.m.
Scholarships are easily accessible in my room, new ones are listed on the Wall in the Hall and there is ALWAYS the comprehensive list in Counselor's Corner.
I am available to assist students with their questions and concerns.
Prepare. Prepare. Prepare. Juniors will take the FREE ACT on March 23! The English and math departments have started some timely test prep in class.
So far this year...
Seniors have attended a Virtual College Fair, applied to a Montana college, analyzed their ACT results and filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)!
Are You Even Ready for College??
(Maybe you should wait a year...?)

*How do I deal with stress?

ACT Scores and the Future

Juniors can take a FREE ACT test here on
Students receive higher scores if they take the time to take some free ACT prep tests. You can find FREE Test Prep at act.org/academy, March2success.com, or 4tests.com. Kaplan Online Prep Live also has a variety of tests on their site; some cost money, but there is a free test section.
If you cannot afford the test fee, ask your counselor about a fee waiver. Seniors who are not pleased with their ACT scores might want to consider retaking the ACT test. Average composite score is 21 on a scale from 1 to 36. Universities use the ACT as a placement test for writing and math classes. I do have copies of every student's ACT test results.
