    Wow, it's pretty rare seeing a 9th grader enter high school running. You're getting a good start. :)

    My advice: keep up the good grades and start preparing for the ACT/SAT (if you think you need it). I would recommend joining a club or organization related to the field of study that interests you and maybe a community service club. I know of a few students who did research internships with universities and the government over the summer. That is something that you might want to look into.

    Remember, high stats are only a part of getting into college. You seem like you're already a well rounded student but the best thing you can do is get involved in something that you're very passionate about. Good luck on your future endeavors :)
