As a first-year, you have one job when it comes to the college process: don't think about it! Instead, get to know Miramonte and let yourself fall in love with the place you will call "home" for the next four years.
Your first year is about exploring your horizons and creating a solid foundation to build the story of your life. Join a club or two, play a sport, participate in a theatre production—not because doing so will someday look "good" on a college resume—but because the more you engage with your school community, the more fulfilling your high school experience will be. So spend this year getting acclimated, strengthening your study skills, making friends, and trying new things. Rest assured, through exploring and embracing what Miramonte has to offer, you have already begun your college journey.
