    As students plan their high school career, it’s important to look beyond just making sure they earn the right number of credits in the right subject areas. Students should begin thinking about and planning for their future career and post-secondary education. The High School and Beyond Plan helps students align their high school courses with their plans for the future. Learn more: High School & Beyond Plan.

    Students should check out their high school’s course catalog for more information about course offerings and services to help them meet their goals.
