    How to be Competitive for College

    • As you work with your counselor to plan your classes, remember that UC and CSU colleges look first at your 10th and 11th grade courses, your GPA, and college entrance test scores. Grades of 'C' or better are a must. If you are struggling, seek help by speaking with your teachers and attending tutoring (on campus before and after school).

    • Get involved in school! Participate in Clubs, Organizations, and Community Service.  Attend school sponsored activities and events, and be an ACTIVE member of LHHS student body.

    •  National Honor Society : Please see your counselor in room 10 for information.

    •  California Scholarship Federation : Students may join if they are eligible academically. Please see your counselor in room, 10 for more information. 

    • Take the PSAT (practice SAT test) in October ; take the PLAN (practice ACT test) in November. Sign up with your counselor in Room 10 as space is limited.

    Plan ahead for Summer School and Junior Year
    • Review courses with your counselor, ask questions about specific courses and college entrance requirements, and challenge yourself by taking Honors and AP courses.  Stay with the course sequences you began in your 9th grade year (e.g., world language, math, science).  You may take summer school classes that you need to repeat for graduation or college entrance.  Summer is also a good time to do community service/volunteer work, take a part-time job, and visit colleges/universities.
