Overview

Over the course of their schooling, each student develops a ‘Body of Work.’ This body of work creates a ‘profile’ of the student across such areas as grades, course taking, test scores, leadership, service, extracurricular activity involvement, and awards. In addition to what a student has done, the profile also reflects who a student is, i.e., demographic and socioeconomic background. Collectively, all of these areas help to determine a student’s ‘Match’ to colleges and for scholarships.

Objective

Develop a student profile of the student you wish to be as a rising high school senior.
