Maximizing High School Years for College Prep

Maximizing High School Years for College Prep - Orinda Academy

Although it may seem like a long time before your East Bay high school student makes his way to college, the truth is that the years at his private college prep school will fly by faster than you might expect. That’s why it’s essential that you help him get the most out of his high school years. Encourage your student to think about where he wants to attend college and research what it will take academically in order to prepare him for admission. From as early as freshman year, your child should take challenging courses that push him intellectually.

Starting in their sophomore year, students at preparatory schools should begin to explore future careers, and then put their best foot forward in their junior and senior years to reach their goals. The academic advisors here at Orinda Academy are always available to assist students in preparing for their futures as college students.
