The college curriculum begins in the 9th grade as students begin to explore what colleges are looking for, and what they can start doing about it in 9th grade. Parents can join our annual Lowerhouse Parent Q&A meeting and our annual College Financial Planning Night.
In 10th grade, students take their first PSAT at MHS, are introduced to Naviance, and explore career possibilities. Parents can join our annual Lowerhouse Parent Q&A meeting and our annual College Financial Planning Night.
The 11th grade focuses on the application process, with students researching schools, writing essays, participating in College Representative meetings (over 150 a year). In the fall, juniors take the PSAT/NMSQT at MHS.
