High School Registration!!!What every freshman needs to know

The Story of PhillipFrom the time he was 10 years old, Philip wanted to go to college at the same school his mom and dad attended. They told him it was very selective, but he was wasnt sure what that meant. Still, the goal was in his head, and he knew he needed to work toward it. When he was in sixth grade, he decided to write to the college and ask for information about admission requirements. He found out that to be considered for admission, he needed to get all As and Bs in high school and get a high score on the ACT. Philip started planning backwards. In order to get As and Bs in high school, he needed to have a good academic background in middle school. He learned he needed to study, and he began reading and increasing his vocab for the ACT. Philip had six years to plan backwards for his goal. He had to work hard every grading period and even went to summer school for additional help in math. Most of his friends didnt have a game plan for their lives, but Philip did. Story of Philip ContinuedWhen Philip began his senior year of high school, he was ready with his college application. He had the qualifications and thought he would achieve his goal of getting into the college of his choice. His friends were surprised to learn how difficult it was to get into a good school. They had goals, but they hadnt planned backwards. The college Philip chose accepted him. His friends said, Oh, Philips a brain, and hes just lucky. Philip felt they were wrong. He believed he had accomplished his goal through planning backwards and then doing a lot of hard work.

Those points are then added up and averaged. REMINDER there is no starting over! Grades and GPAs are based on semesters.Your G.P.A. is cumulative that means as you move on in high school, all your new grades are averaged in with the ones you have already earnedFreshman grades are important!!!!!
