During the 10th grade students should strive to achieve and succeed. Enrolling in challenging courses and earning strong grades will be important in the college admissions process. By taking rigorous courses and achieving success, a student demonstrates progression and academic maturity.
In the 10th grade, Trinity students take the PSAT for a second time. These tests are a help to students as they practice for the SATs and pinpoint areas where improvement can be made. Students are encouraged to develop strong study habits, exercise good judgement, explore interests and identify strengths. During the sophomore year, students may begin to visit colleges and differentiate between the types of institutions and degrees, and understand the connection between good grades and college acceptance. Students are encouraged to investigate ways to build upon their strengths as they pursue academic and extracurricular interests.
