Missy Rose Featured in Cleveland Jewish News; Highlights How to Prepare for College in High School
Missy Rose, Director of College Guidance at Laurel, was recently included in a Cleveland Jewish News story focused on how to prepare for the college transition while still in high school.
When preparing for college, Missy states in the article that students get started early. "The academic preparation takes place throughout high school,” she stated. “The most highly selective colleges and universities will expect a rigorous course load with several AP (Advanced Placement) and honors courses. Students should consider taking a practice SAT and ACT as early as the summer before their junior year to determine which test works best for them.” She goes on to discuss how students can even begin to prepare as early as Grade Nine by identifying areas of interest. "They should pursue those in-depth as they continue through sophomore, junior and senior years. If leadership positions exist, they should try to get involved at that level.”
