How to Set Goals for Back to School Time

    • 1). Write down what you want to accomplish this school year. Begin with a couple of long term goals such as getting good grades, joining an extracurricular activity, or getting into college. Back these up with more specific goals such as getting an A in math class, joining the soccer team and applying to a state college.

    • 2). Identify what it will take to reach these goals. For example, getting good grades for the year may mean scheduling after-class time for help on an assignment, asking for extra credit or getting a tutor in a problem subject. Applying to colleges may require getting with your guidance counselor to discuss your options and ways to improve your college application and essay. Also, joining a sports team may require a few extra hours in the training room so be sure to work around your school and at-home schedule.

    • 3). Consider resources that will help you with your goals. These might include your parents, teachers, guidance counselors and other classmates. Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

    • 4). Pinpoint obstacles you may encounter when trying to reach these goals. Say your long term goal is to graduate early, you have one required course at the end of the year, but there is a pre-requisite class. Consider taking the pre-requisite over winter break, if it's offered.

    • 5). Schedule time for yourself. If your school year is going to be a busy one, make sure you do something fun on the weekend or relax when you get home from school by reading a book or watching television. Goals are more attainable when you're rested and relaxed.
