Video: How to Choose Classes for Senior Year of High School


You need to make sure you take all your required classes your senior year so you can get into the college of your dreams and graduate on time. Check out Isabella’s video below for tips on how to choose your senior year classes.

Take college/AP courses in high school

AP classes are a good chance to see what the college experience is like. Those classes may also apply toward college credit, and that gives you room in college to take other classes you’re interested in.

Talk to your high school counselor

Get advice from your counselor about what classes you should be taking. They can also help you make adjustments to your schedule if needed.

Choose classes you’ll enjoy

You don’t want to be miserable throughout the year because you chose a random filler class. Look over the available classes and find something that piques your interest—maybe drawing, painting, or another hobby that interests you.
