10th Grade

Ready : Overview

Tenth grade is an important year! You might be learning how to drive a car or even getting your first job.

It’s also an important year for your academic career. Set yourself up for success by preparing for the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) or ACT Plan, taking more difficult classes, and pursuing leadership opportunities on sports teams or clubs you're a part of.

Taking dual credit courses in high school gives you a challenging college-level learning opportunity, prepares you for college, and gives you college credits on your transcript which can often be applied to your degree. And, earning college credits in high school can save you time and money when you get to college. Visit the dual credit lookup tool to find out how your AP, IB, or Cambridge test scores apply as college credit.
