1.The academic focus of your college education. Sure, you’re going to take classes in many different subjects in college but THIS two-word phrase is the general term for your main academic focus in college.
3.This acronym stands for: Advanced Placement. AP classes are offered at many high schools. Taking one gives you the rare opportunity to study at a college-level and can potentially earning college credit (if you score high enough on the AP test in May!). Colleges look highly on students who take AP courses and get As or Bs in them.
5.A college or university that depends on student tuition and private donations to fund the school. Tuition at a private school is often higher than at a public school, but there is more financial aid available too!
6.This word is the plural of “alumnus”, which means a graduate from a specific school or university.
7.This acronym stands for Grade Point Average. It is typically based on a 4.0 scale (unless you have AP classes) with A=4 points, B=3 points, C=2 points, D=1 point, and F=0 points. Remember, an A in a P.E. class will not boost your GPA. At College Track we look at academic classes (including Visual and Performing arts) because that’s what colleges want!
8.This is your official high school academic record. It lists every class you’ve taken with your final semester grades. Colleges look at these very carefully to see if you are ready for their level of academic rigor!
12.A student who has already graduated from college and is attending school for an advanced degree to become a doctor, lawyer, dentist, social worker, physical therapist, or to earn a Masters Degree or Ph.D.
13.A college with only undergraduates, which means the professors really get to know you and you have small class sizes. A liberal arts education does NOT mean you study painting or music, it mean you will study all of the following subjects at a high level: MATH, PHILOSOPHY, LITERATURE, A LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH, & SCIENCE. You still have to choose a college major at one of these schools, but you will walk away with a solid educational foundation in all these subjects!
14.This standardized test is used by colleges and universities as part of their admissions criteria. This is a three-hour exam that measures verbal and math reasoning skills. A perfect score is 2400.
15.This is the degree traditionally earned after 4 years of full-time study at a college or university. There are two main kinds: 1) B.A (Bachelor of Arts) or 2) B.S. (Bachelor of Science)
2.The high school classes you MUST take in order to be eligible for college. You will not be admitted to a Louisiana Public University without credit for these classes.
4.A contest to earn free money for college.
6.This is another type of standardized test that is used by colleges and universities as part of their admissions criteria. A perfect score is 36.
9.The money you pay for the privilege of attending classes at a particular college or university!
10.A college student who has not yet received their first college degree.
11.This type of class is like an AP class, in that they are assumed to be taught at a higher level than traditional high school courses. All College Track students should take at least one of these courses in high school. College looking highly on students who take these courses and get As or Bs in them.
