PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Sophomore Programs

Jones College Prep

2019-2020

 

           

Welcome to your sophomore year!  We are so excited for the opportunity to spend time with you as you start planning for your future!  Our goal is to provide you an introduction to what you need to do in high school to prepare for a successful school year and beyond; to expose you to various careers; and some life skills that you will use not only in high school, but throughout your future.

 

Program Description and Goals

 

The Sophomore Program will consist of three Seminars (large group meetings), 1:1 conference with your Counselor, and a Career Event in the Spring. The lessons and events will cover the following topics:

 

  • Complete an intake survey for your counselor to know more about you
  • Managing anxiety, academics, and navigating the school year
  • Course scheduling and transcript review
  • Career Exploration & Post-Secondary planning

 

The goals of this program are that:

  • Sophomores will understand the academic and extra-curricular steps necessary to have a successful high school experience.
  • Sophomores will understand the importance of mental, physical and emotional well-being.
  • Sophomores will develop positive relationships with their counselor.
