Junior (education)

A junior is a student in their third year of study (generally referring to high school or college/university study) as coming immediately before their senior year.[1][2] Juniors are considered upperclassmen.[3]

Education

High school

In the United States, the 11th grade is usually the third year of a student's high school period and is referred to as junior year.

College

In the U.S., colleges generally require students to declare an academic major by the beginning of their junior year.[4] College juniors are advised to begin the internship process and preparing for additional education (medical school, law school, etc.) by completing applications and taking additional examinations.[5]

United Kingdom primary school

In the UK, any child in key stage 2 (Year 3 – Year 6) is known as a junior, having developed from previously being infants. At the end of Year 6 (usually age 11), they leave primary school and go to secondary school—the transition from Junior to Senior (unless they live in an area with a middle school system).
