Graduation Info

Educational Plan

The 4‐Year Plan is a personalized high school educational plan. The 4‐Year Plan allows students to plan their classes for four years of high school. Beginning in the 8th grade, all students meet with their counselors during the spring semester of every school year to develop and/or update their 4‐Year Plan. Students and parents / guardians should discuss course selections as well as descriptions and fill out the 4‐Year Plan Worksheet on page at the back of this course catalogue. Detailed course information is listed in this catalogue to inform students and parents as to course options. Please note that many courses have a prerequisite, a requirement that must be met prior to enrolling in a particular course. Students should make sure that they have met prerequisites for courses they are registering for. Students should have a 4‐Year Plan Worksheet completed prior to meeting with their counselors in the spring.
