Senior year is a great time to reflect on all you’ve accomplished your last few years of school and celebrate the end of high school, but all the parties and celebrations shouldn’t get in the way of your academics. You might be tempted to take things easy at school and instead focus on going out with friends, but it is important that you find the balance between your social life and academics. Remember that even though the finish line is close, you still have to cross it. Here at The Tutoring Center in Orlando we have some tips to help you make it through senior year and finish strong.

Grades still count

Sometimes knowing you got into your dream school can make you feel like you’ve done all the work required and now you can relax. You don’t necessarily have to study all day, but remember that your grades still matter. Receiving low grades on your transcript can still affect a university's admission decision even after you’ve been accepted. Scholarships based on GPA will only be awarded if you maintain your GPA high. If you feel like slacking during senior year, remind yourself that your grades are still important.

Get involved

If you find yourself feeling unmotivated or bored, give something new a try. Don’t leave high school without joining the club you’ve always wanted to be a part of or without running for a leadership role in the club you’ve always belonged to. Trying something new can give you a surge of energy and motivation as you make new discoveries. Stepping up and becoming a leader to your peers is a great way to take on new responsibilities that will keep you motivated and moving forward. Leadership roles also look great on college applications and can help you in future projects and work.

It’s all about balance

Senior year can feel like the year of “lasts,” but don’t let this distract you from your work. While you will want to spend most of your time with friends enjoying your last months together before college, you must find a balance between social activities and school work. You can definitely participate in social activities, but learn to say no to activities that will get in the way of important study sessions or exam days. Balancing your social life and academics while in high school is great practice for when you start college. Remember that once graduation is over, you will have tons of free time to enjoy.
