Foreign Language Subject Tests
Students should take foreign language subject tests during level 4 or level 4H of a language in the junior year. If taking an AP level in senior year students can also take foreign language Subject Tests in the senior fall.
Students should take Subject Tests with Listening whenever possible. Our students have a history of doing well on this version of the test.
1. Let GFA Athletic Director, Tauni Butterfield, and your coaches know of your interest in pursuing intercollegiate athletics and ask for honest feedback on your progress as an athlete In addition to notifying GFA coaches, you should also notify club coaches if applicable.
2. Be prepared for feedback and constructive criticism. You can make a difference in your prospects by heeding advice.
3. Make sure that you get someone to tape your athletic contests. Professional level video is NOT required. Coaches can spot talent.
4. Prepare/update your athletic resume. You can e-mail College Guidance for assistance with format as well as for their feedback on what information to include.
5. If you are a STARTING PLAYER, you can begin e-mailing coaches as well as utilizing online school recruitment websites at select schools giving them preliminary information about your schedule and your intention to continue in college. This list can be broad, but should include input from your coaches and College Guidance.
6. Keep your grades up. The better student you are and become, the more options you will have based on your ability to contribute to the teams and the college community.
7. Plan to attend a camp, showcase or other event where college coaches will get a chance to see you compete. Advice from coaches should be sought.
8. Treat this process as you would any other step of the college process by being in the driver’s seat. If the communication isn’t directly between you and coaches of prospective schools, it will be less effective, and in many cases, counterproductive to reaching your goal of becoming a recruited athlete.
