Lists are updated and available to you outside of the Guidance office. For Online Learners, pay close attention to your course “end date”. Credit is given when you show 100% completion in the course. Your grade will appear on the final transcript requested by all colleges. See me on Monday if you have any concerns.



This is a great opportunity for a minimal cost. If you are interested in any of these fields of study, please come down to Guidance and we can talk about it in more detail.

Grade 7/8

Big changes are coming as you transition into the next phase of the high school program. I will be meeting with both grade levels to review the expectations of the next grade level. We will also have a Q&A session with upper classmen available to answer all of your questions.
