Navigating the Final Stretch of High School

As the school year winds down and graduation draws near, Williams Educational Consultants feels the joys of May! Although it is a pivotal month filled with excitement and important tasks for high school students, it is busy for all families trying to reach that stage. Here are a few essential items that you will want to take advantage of as we head into May! 

Here's what you can expect in the final stretch:

College Decisions and Commitments - MAY 1st (Depending on your college!)

  • Decision Deadline: Many colleges require students to confirm their enrollment and submit a deposit by May 1st. Carefully review your options and commit to the college that best aligns with your goals and preferences. Also, be sure that your college has kept its commitment day the same due to FAFSA delays.

AP Exams

  • Exam Preparation: May is the month when Advanced Placement (AP) exams are held. To maximize your chances of success, review your course materials, practice past exam questions, and familiarize yourself with the exam format.

  • Exam Schedule: Check your exam schedule and make note of the dates and times for each AP exam you're taking. Arrive early, well-rested, and with all necessary materials on exam day.
