Choosing classes for the next year can be a fun, but stressful process. Mostly stressful. Should you take another year of Spanish?

Or maybe start getting into business classes? Or maybe you should see what everyone likes about art…

Choosing classes can be hard, especially when you don’t know what you’re going to do with your life. I’m one of the lucky ones, I do know what to do with my life.

That gives me a better idea of what courses to take next year. I have a few classes I know I want to take, but after those three, I get completely lost and don’t have a clue what to take.

Career Cruising, the website the guidance counselors have us use when they come in for the day, is helping to give me an idea of what classes to choose.

I decided to take two of the three classes it recommends me to take. That way, I know I won’t hate my schedule, but colleges will still look at me like I’m a good student.

Choose harder classes for each grade. This year I’m taking two AP classes and next year I’m planning to take three CAPP classes.

It’ll also help because I’m getting closer to college and taking advanced classes and improving grades impresses colleges.

Also, look into who the teacher of your classes are going to be. The teacher could make or break the class for you.

Those are my tips! And hey, you can always change your schedule if you need to!
