What is a Junior Audit? 
We will discuss your future plans, senior year classes, credits, community service, scholarship possibilities, career aspirations and ACT testing.  It is mandatory, and if you miss your appointment, we will call you out of class to make it up.  We get to spend 20 minutes talking about YOU...nothing better than that!
