    Teacher Recommendations: Juniors should be thinking seriously about which teachers they will ask to write their letters of recommendation. Between mid-April and the end of the school year is the time for students to ask teachers to write a letter of recommendation. Click here for information and tips for approaching teachers, following up in writing or in person, and entering the recommendation request in Scoir.


    College Research: We encourage students to start researching colleges: online (via Scoir, other websites like Niche, and virtual tours on college websites) and in person if possible.


    Testing: Even though many colleges and universities have gone test-optional, all Colorado juniors are automatically registered for the School Day SAT on April 12. Some students may choose to take additional SAT or ACT tests. Please talk with your Post-Secondary counselor about a personalized testing plan.


    Internships, volunteer opportunities, and employment: Post-Secondary Counseling has put together a list of local internship and volunteer opportunities ranging from the Aspen Institute to Rocky Mountain Youth Corps to Anderson Ranch as well as dozens of local businesses that love to hire Aspen High School students. Check out our Employment & Enrichment Opportunities webpage or talk to your Post-Secondary Counselor for ideas.


    We really look forward to working with each of you.
