Sophomores

  • ONE DOWN...3 MORE TO GO!


    Sophomore year is all about CHANGE. You're no longer a freshmen, but you're not an "upper classmen" either. Mandatory Saber Time doesn't apply to you unless it's individually put on your schedule, open campus is now available for you, and you have the opportunity to start taking some dual credit and AP classes. You're on your way!
