Hey, Sophomores!

  • Welcome to your sophomore year!  It's never too early to start thinking about your future.  Where are you going to go, and what will you be doing after High School?  You have had to navigate the beginning of High School and are no longer Freshmen.  Well, let me REMIND you...,

    One of the ways we communicate is via REMIND messages. Please subscribe to your class REMIND messages.

    Information for Sophomores
    We are doing our best to answer any questions you may have. The truth is, we don't have all the answers yet, but we are doing our best to gather information and relay that information to you all. We will use this page to continually add resources and information as we receive it. 

    Alaska Performance Scholarship - Updated eligibility charts and additional information will be available on the APS website soon, and in the meantime, published eligibility requirements can be found at: APS.alaska.gov 

    College Applications and Fees - 
    Your future is now! Keep applying to colleges! If you qualify for free and reduced lunch, please reach out to Ms. Alexander at honey.alexander@k12northstar.org and she can work with you to see if you qualify to waive your college application fee. 
    Letters of Recommendation - If you need a letter of recommendation, fill out this form and send it to the individual you're asking to write the recommendation. If you cannot print the document and then take a picture/scan it back to your computer, I'd suggest using the documents as a guideline for you to provide information to the recommended in the body of an email.

    ACT & SAT
    Here are the 2023-24 ACT/SAT Dates  of the two exams. This sheet lists the differences between the two exams. Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to take the ACT and SAT as many times as they can to achieve their highest scores. Keep in mind, the APS (Alaska Performance Scholarship) requires a minimum ACT or SAT Score. More information and study guides available here.

    If you are using an ACT Fee Waiver or a SAT Fee Waiver, you can NOT register for the late registration dates. 

    Scholarships - Links to local and national scholarships can be found on Lathrop's Scholarships and Financial Aid page.
