Sophomore Grade Level Planning


 Freshman year    Sophomore year     Junior year     Senior year


FALL (first semester)
  • Update the extracurricular activities list you began working on last year and review your goals and academic performance from freshman year.
  • Talk with your Grade Level Chair about how you can strengthen your academic program with Honors and AP courses in subject areas you are strong in.
  • Prepare to take the second, and last, practice PSAT test in October. Take advantage of prep tools such as the workshop offered to you and publications that will familiarize you more with the format and questions. Visit the College Board website for more information.
  • Attend the Sunshine College Fair (which is organized in part by Saint Andrew's School). You will get the opportunity to communicate with college representatives directly and see first-hand what the colleges have to offer. Approximately 190 schools will be at this event.
SPRING (second semester)
  • Talk to your Grade Level Chair and review your performance and goals and make the appropriate adjustments to your schedule.
  • Complete the “Do What You Are” career inventory prior to your Spring meeting with your Grade Chair.  The link is called “My Personality Type”  in the navigation bars.
  • After receiving your PSAT results, be sure to identify areas that you can improve in.
  • If you are traveling near a college or university during Spring Break or summer, consider making an informal visit.
  • If appropriate, prepare for and take the SAT Subject Tests in June.
  • Get your summer reading done early.
  • Be prepared to tackle an extremely rigorous and important year of your high school years.
  • Consider taking the PSAT/SAT preparation courses and workshops in the fall and spring of your junior year.
  • Get involved with a summer job, activity, or community service. This is a great time to enrich your summer.


  • The classes you have now influence the classes that will be available to you in the future.  If you are not in advanced courses right now, don't worry, it is ok.  You still have time to do well in the classes you are currently in, which will allow you to move into those honors and AP courses.
