Other Required Credits for graduation Fine Arts Credit PE Credit 2 Credits of Foreign Language (wait for 10 th Grade to start your language…) Choose one from each Category English Math Biology Social Study (World Geography is suggested) Choose a selection from each core category – that should equal 4 choices. Next choose 4 more choices (or if you choose 9-weeks courses, 8 choices). We highly recommend that if you have not started a foreign language in middle school, you wait until 10 th Grade to take your credits of foreign language.
Courses of Interest (9-weeks) Teen Leadership Personal Financial Literacy Professional Communications Courses that have been popular with past 9 th Graders are Teen Leadership and Professional Communications (these courses are college readiness courses and teach public speaking skills). Personal Financial Literacy is a new course that helps students learn to master their personal finances.
All students must complete their 4-year plan on Career Cruising and complete their endorsement declaration. Your middle school counselors will be guiding you through the 4-year planning process. Once you have found your suggested career clusters, you can choose your endorsement and elective courses that are part of that endorsement.
