Pratul’s Answer

As you begin your junior year in high school, it's crucial to focus on maintaining strong grades, since these are the most recent ones colleges will see when you apply next year. Use the summer to study for the SAT, as a high PSAT score can lead to scholarship opportunities. Think about taking the ACT too, as each test has its advantages and disadvantages. Explore available AP classes and dual enrollment options. If you already know your desired major, look ahead at required college courses and try to take some prerequisites in high school if possible. Begin researching scholarships, investigating and visiting colleges, including backup options. Reach out to a guidance counselor for assistance, particularly if you feel overwhelmed.

Andres’s Answer

Ideally: (This can often be the hardest step, you can almost skip it, but I recommend thinking about it)
1) Figure out what you want to major in (or general areas)
2) What are the best schools for that area
3) Figure out what do you want out of university, go to a party school, research school, religious, small/large, etc.
4) Filter out for universities that you would like to go to and research what it takes to get into each of these

Then in general:
1) Study for SAT/ACT
2) take electives and clubs in the subjects you enjoy (or haven't tried out! you want to make sure you look well rounded and are certain of what you want to study)
3) enjoy your time in highschool
