Two students sign letters of intent for collegiate athletics


Get action. Do things; be sane; don’t fritter away your time; create, act, take a place wherever you are, and be somebody; get action.

– Theodore Roosevelt

The above quote speaks to the college application process. At times for juniors and, especially, seniors, it is a reminder that the best way to avoid stress and anxiety is to begin tackling the tasks at hand. Much anxiety is caused by not knowing what to do or not doing what one knows ought to be done.

The same holds true for 9th- and 10th-grade students, too, but in a slightly different way: don’t worry about doing things for college applications! Just make the most of the high school experience, and you’ll be in good shape. In that spirit, the below timeline is designed to help students prepare for the journey ahead, “do things” and “get action.”
