Grade 10 Information


10th Grade Checklist

  • Talk with your school counselor about career options and the education required for those careers.
  • Talk with friends, teachers, counselors and your parents about college.
  • Talk with your parents about saving and paying for college.
  • Review your high school class plan. Take the most difficult classes you can handle. Stay focused on your schoolwork.
  • Sign up for classes that will earn college credit during your junior year through Concurrent Enrollment.
  • Explore internships and apprenticeships.
  • Enroll in a summer enrichment program. 
  • Participate in extracurricular activities.
  • Register with the NCAA if you plan on playing sports (D1 or D2) in college.

Reminders & Hints for Success

  • Review where you are academically. Do you need to improve your academic record (transcript)? A reminder that your transcript will determine your eligibility for career, college, and scholarship opportunities. Do you need to increase your GPA? Do you need to retake courses to stay on track for graduation?
  • Ask for help when you need it; there are A LOT Of people at SEHS that WANT to help you!
  • Get involved - not only will this help strengthen your resume (which helps with scholarship money) but it will also make your high school years more enjoyable.
  • It may seem far away, but college/career is right around the corner! Take advantage of the opportunities you will be given throughout the year to explore colleges and career paths. Start thinking about what you want your future to look like.
  • Do you know what you want to do for a career? If so, take courses related to this interest. If not, take a variety of electives to help you explore different areas of interest.
  • Keep track of your volunteer hours, grades, extracurricular activities, and awards. This will be helpful later in high school!
