High School Planning

As part of our freshman guidance unit, all students complete a 4-year plan to ensure they are aware of graduation and 4-year college eligibility requirements. This is a great tool to reference when it is time to select courses for the following year. We encourage students to see this as a working document, where they can continually update their choices if their interests change.

Guidance Counselors are here to meet with students and families to guide students in their planning, and to help with revising the plan when necessary. Please review the Graduation & A-G Requirements Chart below before putting together a 4-year plan.
