Steps to take as a Sophomore in High School, to prepare for college.?

I am a Sophomore in high school, and I definately will be attending college. What are some steps to take to prepare my self for college. Particularly Engineering. I know about academics right now half of my schedule is honors classes. As a freshman my GPA was 4.0625 on a 4.000 scale. I am taking every single honors class that is available. To prepare. I am also taking drafting courses. My senior year, I will be able to take classes and earn dual credit. I am president of my class for student council, in a service / volunteer club, golf team, and tech prep. I am in the top 5 % of my class and am looking to climb to hopefully #1. Thanks.
