College & Career Planning

Freshman/ Sophomores

What you need to know:  

  • Go on  https://tcoe.cacareerzone.org to discover possibilities, explore industry sectors and develop a career Hub. Make sure you sign in and make an account! 

  • Participate in extracurricular activities. Academics aren’t everything. Explore your interest in a sport, school club, music or drama group, or community volunteer activity.  Remember that colleges would rather see real involvement in one activity instead of a loose connection to several. Use Trinity High School's Community Service form to keep track of your volunteer activities for college. Turn in to Kaitlyn in the counseling center to receive participation credit in our Academic Awards ceremonies. 

  • Get a jump start on learning about Financial aid from the following website: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/

  • Make sure to look for a job, internship, or volunteer during the summer! Check out Trinity's partnership with A Cradle to Career here  in an effort to give more of our students access to job shadowing and internships 

  • Learn about the importance of taking the PSAT 

  • Most importantly- keep your grades up to get the best financial aid package possible and reach your college goals! 

Juniors

What you need to know:

  • Keep up to date on the latest ACT and SAT information here. Make sure to one or both of these tests before the end of your junior year. Remember, you can take it more than one time to find your best score possible. Fee Waivers are available in the THS counseling center for those who qualify. 

  • If you are interested in playing sports in college, make an account with the NCAA. 

  • Interested in joining College Connections for the fall, sign up here, deadline is March 1, 2019.
