Junior To Do List

Sizing Yourself Up Survey, Class of 2021

This questionnaire asks you to respond to a series of questions regarding your post-high school preferences. Answering these questions will help you to begin thinking about your future and allow your college counselor to learn more about you in advance of your junior meeting. You should complete this questionnaire before your junior family meeting to help get the conversation started.

Junior Family Meeting

Each CDH junior and his or her parents/guardians will be invited to schedule an individual meeting with a college counselor to discuss your future. Your family will receive an email linking you to your college counselor’s available appointments and you can schedule your appointment online. Be sure that you have completed your "Sizing Yourself Up Survey" prior to your junior meeting. This is your time to get off to a good start and get your questions answered.

 

Career Inventories

There are three career inventories on your Naviance account that will help you to
determine career paths that might be a good fit. Click on “About Me”, then “My
Assessments”. There you will find the Career Interest Profiler, Strengths Explorer and Do What You Are Assessments. Do all three to gather career clues.

Register for the ACT

Go to the ACT website (act.org) to register to take the ACT spring of the junior year. The ACT is given in February, April, June and July. CDH is a test site for the April and September tests. If you are going to apply for test accommodations you need to start that process with your school counselor as soon as possible.
