13 What are we covering? Junior Conferences Graduation Requirements GPA Calculation Junior Timeline Testing Information Dual Credit Information NCAA Information Post-Secondary Options College Visits

14 What are we Not covering? Application Information Ordering Transcripts Essays Recommendation Letters Financial Aid Scholarships Why aren t we covering this information? Because we don t want you to get overwhelmed

15 But where can I find this information? If you are ready to tackle the information you need for your senior year, or are interested in finding out more, check out our Guide to Life After High School or go to our website and check out our Senior Summit PowerPoint.

16 Social Media Find us on Facebook and Twitter! We post information about upcoming events and information about registration, college, financial aid, and scholarships. Keller High Counselor

17 Social Media Speaking of Social Media Did you know that admissions personnel monitor applicant s Social Media accounts? Did you know that they can rescind your acceptance? Watch your social media posts including pictures!

18 Junior Conferences Junior Conferences will begin Tuesday, Oct. 10 th and go through Dec. 17 th. Schedules vary by counselor. The Junior Conference covers this information, but is individualized for your student. Use the QR Code to access the Keller High School website to register for your junior conference. You can also use the Chromebooks here to register for your junior conference.

19 Graduation Requirements English (4 Credits) Math (4 Credits) Science (4 Credits) Social Studies (4 Credits) English I English II English III English IV Algebra I Geometry Algebra II 4 th Math Biology Chemistry/Physics* Advanced Science Advanced Science World Geography World History U.S. History Government (0.5) Economics (0.5) Most classes have the option of pre-ap or AP.

21 Dual Credit For more information about Dual Credit, join us for our Dual Credit Information Meeting this spring (dates will be released soon). A representative from TCC will be presenting the new and improved (and so much easier) registration process.

22 Let s talk about KHS students in college

23 College Choice = college Completion Did you know that 84% of KHS seniors attend college right after high school? (2 year and 4 year combined) Within the first 2 years post-high school, 89% of our students attend college! Most of the other 11-16% (an average of about of our seniors) go to technical schools or the U.S. Military or start college within 2 years of high school graduation.

24 College Choice = college Completion 92% of all KHS graduates who attended college right after high school return for their sophomore year of college! However only 57% of KHS graduates graduate from college in 6 years.

25 College Choice = college Completion Why is that? Research shows that students who choose their university carefully and make the best choice based on academics, experience, and amenities are the students who complete college within 6 years. College Choice = College Completion

26 Junior Timeline 1. Credit and Transcript Evaluation 2. Create a Personal File and Résumé 3. Ask Yourself, What do I want to be when I grow up? 4. Consider Post-Secondary Options 5. Exams 6. Research Schools/Research Requirements 7. Visit Schools 8. NCAA Eligibility Center (if applicable)

27 1. Credit and Transcript Evaluation Evaluate your credits and review your transcripts. Check your GPA and rank. Your junior conference will cover a majority of this information. You will register for your senior year courses in the spring. You will also receive an unofficial transcript during your junior conference. You can access an unofficial transcript on the Home Access Center (HAC). When we are updating GPA/ranks, we will take this feature offline for a few days.

28 Transcripts, GPAs, and Rank When you get your transcript, please note the following: -Your graduation plan: Foundation w/endorsement, Distinguished -Your classes and grades (check for errors) -Your GPA and Rank -Your Credits

29 Transcripts, GPAs, and Rank GPAs are recalculated every semester. The GPA listed on your transcript is your current GPA from the end of your sophomore year. Your GPA and rank will be recalculated at the end of the 1 st semester (really Jan. 2018) and again at the end of this school year (June 2018). When you send off transcripts to the colleges, they will see your GPA and rank from the end of your JUNIOR year. You will be applying in the fall and will NOT have earned senior grades when you apply.

30 Transcripts, GPAs, and Rank Your GPA will be recalculated in the spring of your senior year. Many colleges will want mid-year reports and WILL look at this updated GPA and rank as well as what classes you take your senior year. RANK locks at the end of the 5 th six weeks of the senior year. GPA NEVER LOCKS.

31 Transcripts, GPAs, and Rank How do I calculate my GPA? -Add all STATE credits from each school year and add in any pre-ap or AP points (10 points per semester) -Exclude any CBEs, correspondence courses, Dual Credit not taken at KHS, and summer school not taken in KISD -Add up each year s points -Divide by the number of ½ credits (if you have 20 credits, divide by 40) Example: 9th Grade: 10th Grade: 11th Grade: 85 Q 95 Q P 94 P P 81 P 86 P 86 P Total: 358 Total: 357 Total: 399 Add: = 1114 Divide: 1114 / 12 =

32 Transcripts, GPAs, and Rank How do I calculate my GPA on a 4.0 scale? -Take your 100 point GPA and divide by 25. Example: /25 = GPAs are weighted (meaning they include extra points for pre-ap and AP classes) To get your unweighted GPA, you must fill out a GPA/Rank form in the Counseling Center and we will give you a 4.0 unweighted GPA. Our transcripts will ONLY print the 100 point weighted GPA. If the college you are applying to requires a different GPA, you MUST COME SEE MRS. STURZ IN THE COUNSELING CENTER!

33 2. Create a Personal File and Resume Find a good spot in your house (a drawer, a bucket, a bin, etc.) to put all of the mail from colleges Create folders for each college, or consider one big folder for colleges you are interested in. Create folders on your computer and in your to save important documents (you will get a LOT from )

34 2. Create a Personal File and Resume When writing your resume Include: academics, athletics, clubs, volunteer hours, and work experience. Update your resume every semester so it is ready to go anytime. Order your resume: By Activity, then By Year Include amount of time for each activity. Include leadership positions. Include descriptions and duties for all activities. Include resumes when asking for recommendation letters.

35 3. Ask yourself what you want to be when you grow up You don t have to know exactly what you re going to be now! It will help to know areas of interest such as computers, health care, etc. Take an interest inventory to help you see how your interests translate into careers. Shadow someone in the field to see if that s REALLY what you want to do.

36 4. Consider Post-Secondary Options 2 Year University: A junior or community college that will allow you to earn an associate s degree with the core courses 4 year universities require. These schools also offer scholarships and financial aid. They are much cheaper and a great way to transition to college life. Four year universities are much more accepting of transfer students they only look at your college grades and do not look at your high school GPA/Rank/ACT-SAT scores, etc. Some have housing depending on the type and location of the school. Some also are feeder schools to larger, four year universities (Blinn-A&M, South Plains College Texas Tech).

37 4. Consider Post-Secondary Options 4 Year University: A college that will allow you to earn a bachelor s degree or higher. These schools offer scholarships and financial aid. They offer on-site housing. They have higher requirements for acceptance. They will have many options for majors and will specialize in certain areas. The first 2 years at a four year university will be spent working on the core curriculum and then the last 2 years will be spent working on classes in the major area.

38 4. Consider Post-Secondary Options Trade/Technical Schools: Trade/technical schools offer programs and certificates in many areas that do not require associates or bachelors degrees. Trade/technical schools do not usually have a core curriculum, students have classes related to the career choice only. Some trade/technical schools have on-site housing, but many do not. Check accreditation for trade/technical schools to ensure you are attending a quality school.

39 4. Consider Post-Secondary Options U.S. Military: Talk to a recruiter for specific information on each branch of the U.S. Military. Do not sign any paperwork without discussing your decision and choice with your parents. Students can earn college credit while in the U.S. Military. The U.S. Military can pay for some or all of your college tuition. College ROTC programs can help you prepare for the U.S. Military while attending college. You must take the ASVAB Career Inventory Program and Test your junior or senior year to determine the type of job for you in the U.S. Military.

40 4. Consider Post-Secondary Options Workforce: You may decide to join the workforce immediately after you graduate from high school, but remember, it will be difficult to go back to school after you ve been out for awhile. Depending on each job, you will be required to do some sort of training for each job.

41 5. Exams - Act Test Date: Regular Registration: Late Registration Window (Late Fee Required): December 9, 2017 November 3, 2017 November 4-17, 2017 February 10, 2018 January 12, 2018 January 13-19, 2018 April 14, 2018 March 9, 2018 March 10-23, 2018 June 9, 2018 May 4, 2018 May 5-18, 2018 July 14, 2018 June 15, 2018 June 16-22, 2018

42 5. Exams - SAT KHS students tend to score about average (500 range). The questions are NOT worded like any test they have ever taken. It is a logic and reason test. It is a timed test and this is a common problem for students. They MUST practice in a timed environment. You may take the SAT more than once. If you need accommodations, you must apply for them early.

43 5. Exams - SAT It is NOT an IQ test. It is a curriculum test and the students need to prepare and study before they take the test. There are 3 sections: Critical Reading, Math, and Writing. Each section of the SAT is scored from ; however, the total score is in a range from 400 to Essay results reported separately, with Reading, Analysis, and Writing reporting 2-8 scales.

44 5. Exams - SAT The writing portion is now optional. Colleges look at the essay portion as a way to make decisions for students. You are not penalized for guessing.

45 5. Exams - SAT Test Date: Regular Registration: Late Registration (Late Fee Required): December 3, 2016 November 3, 2016 November 15-22, 2016 January 21, 2017 December 21, 2016 January 3-10, 2017 March 11, 2017 February 10, 2017 February 21-28, 2017 May 6, 2017 April 7, 2017 April 18-25, 2017 June 3, 2017 May 9, 2017 May 16-24, 2017

46 5. Exams - EOC English I (Reading and Writing) Should have completed English II (Reading and Writing) Should have completed Algebra I Should have completed Biology Should have completed United States History Spring 2018 Retests for any test previously given but not scored at Level II Satisfactory, the Retest Date is in December of 2017.

47 6. Research Colleges Go online and research specific degree requirements Research college application requirements and deadlines Research the area where the college is located Research the Extras of the college dorms, activities, support systems Make a list of schools you want to visit Remember the Newest, Prettiest building will be on the website.

48 7. College visits Here are things you shouldn't miss while visiting a college. Take a look at this list before planning campus trips to make sure that you allow enough time on each campus to get a sense of what the school and the life of its students is really like. Take a campus tour. Have an interview with admissions officer. Get business cards and names of people you meet for future contacts. Pick up financial aid forms. Participate in a group information session at the admissions office. Sit in on a class of a subject that interests you. Talk to a professor in your chosen major or in a subject that interests you. Talk to coaches of sports in which you might participate. Talk to a student or counselor in the career center. Read the student newspaper.

49 7. College visits Try to find other student publications department newsletters, alternative newspapers, literary reviews. Eat in the cafeteria. Ask students why they chose the college. Wander around the campus by yourself. Read for a little while in the library and see what it's like. Ask students what they hate about the college. Ask students what they love about the college. Browse in the college bookstore. Walk or drive around the community surrounding the campus. Ask students what they do on weekends. Listen to the college's radio station. Try to see a dorm that you didn't see on the tour.
