Preparing for the Next Step
What’s your plan? Junior students are well into planning for college and career. Course options at this level begin to solidify programs of study that lead to five options for graduation endorsements on the foundation high school plan. Students in grade 11 may be qualified for multiple college level courses offered at the high school. Students may even choose to visit college campuses they are considering as they transition towards 2 or 4 year colleges, apprenticeships or training, or even military.
