9 HIGH SCHOOL & BEYOND PLAN The High School and Beyond Plan gets all students thinking about their future and how to get the most out of high school, so that they’re ready to pursue their adult lives, no matter what direction they plan to take. Students write their plan in Pathways and then continue to revise it throughout high school to accommodate changing interests or goals. Students should be encouraged to include the following elements in their plan:  Their personal story – what experiences, interests and goals are shaping who they are now and who they want to become  Career path and research  Their goals for high school – what their four years of high school look like, including classes, extracurricular activities, sports, a job, etc.  Their goals for immediately after high school – a student’s plan should include the classes needed in preparation for a 2- to 4-year college, vocational or technical school, certificate program or the workforce

10 CULMINATING PROJECT As part of the Culminating Project, each student will demonstrate essential skills through reading, writing, speaking, production and/or performance. To complete the project, students are required to work on their project outside of school, write a research paper, and present to a community and peer panel. The CP is facilitated by their Pathways advisor.
