     General:
     
    It is never too early to start thinking about what you want to do after high school.
     
    Establish your own personal e-mail account if you do not have one already. 
     
    Academics:
    • Look at your personal learning plan...are you on track to take the classes that you want to take throughout high school?
    • Make sure you are challenging yourself with your course selections, this looks good on your transcripts and also helps to prepare you for college testing.
     College Research:
    • Start researching careers you might be interested in, and identifying what education you will need after high school.
    • Research college profiles and what they look for in high school graduates.
    • Attend the GCISD College Fair every year.
    Get Involved in your school community:
    • Start writing down your extracurricular activities and volunteer activities, include the following information:
      • name of group or organization
      • a description of your activities
      • how many hours a week/month/year you are involved
      • dates when you were active in the organization
      • any offices you have held
      • any awards you have received
