When you move on to high school and become a freshman, everything starts to "count". All of your freshmen courses, grades, and credits will be on your high school transcripts, and your freshman grades will be used when determining your high school GPA. Freshmen activities, honors, and awards can also be listed on college and scholarship applications. As a freshman, become involved in activities, establish good study habits, and work hard to get good grades.
