Personalized 4 Year Plan
Each student will meet with the Counseling Team to map out a draft 4-year plan for the courses they likely want to study. Keep in mind this is just a draft and it is ok if this path changes based on new information.
Focus on Study Skills
High school usually brings more homework, including multi-step projects that will require some planning. Many students will be ready to take on AP courses and/or exams but it is ok to wait until G10 for this.
Balance your Experiences
High school is also a great time to try something new. Be sure to find a balance where you can show a variety. Colleges would much rather see you excited about a few meaningful activities than marginally involved with a long list of clubs.
In order to graduate, CMIS requires you complete a minimum of 60 hours of volunteering. Your service learning does not need to be with an organization associated with the school. Contact the Service Learning Coordinator for more information.
Begin to research areas of the world and specific countries that students are interested in considering for their post-secondary education. Become familiar with how the university application process works and begin to research specific programs and schools they are interested in.
The PSAT 8/9 will be administered to all CMIS students again in G9. Students can compare data from G8 and G9 to make sure they are on track for future College Board exams. MAP test results can be used to determine strengths.
