There is no easy way out of this one, it will take hard work and persistence. Focus this year on getting the best grades you can, to bring your GPA up. If you are interested in any colleges, start by checking their admissions requirements online. If you need to bring up your SAT scores, there are lots of SAT preparation guides to choose from. Check your local library, bookstore, or Amazon.com to find one you think will work for you. Larger cities and schools usually also have classes that you can take to help you prepare for college admissions and taking the SAT or ACT. Your school counselor will be able to give you advice as well, so set up an appointment with him/her in the first couple weeks of school so that he/she can help you set goals and develop an action plan and college-prep timeline for this year.
