Take some time to read and learn about what students must consider during their high school years and how to plan for college. Communication with parents, counselors and teachers is crucial, as well as the college counselor, who is a great resource to double check 4 year graduation plans. Not only do these people offer support, but they also help students to better understand how to achieve their goals, step by step. Matrix holds its students accountable through compassion and care, because we want our students to go far.
Parents and students should be aware that completion of the A-G requirements does not guarantee admission to a university. A student’s grade point average and test scores will also factor into admissions decisions. In order to be competitive, students should plan to take higher levels of courses that exceed the A-G requirements. Students should consult their counselor for guidance in this area. Parents and students can log onto https://doorways.ucop.edu/list/ to see a list of A-G courses offered at each high school.
Various essays are required by some schools to demonstrate why a student wishes to attend, and to help them stand out. Matrix helps its students learn self-awareness and real-world comparisons in lessons so that they are capable of handling all of the tests and tasks required in the process of applying to and being accepted in to college.
