High school course planning
This chart can be used to plan your classes for the next four years. First plan your 9th-grade
classes and then pencil in the classes you expect to take in the 10th, 11th, and 12th
grades. These choices may change later, depending upon your interests and career plans.
Check with your counselor to make sure your schedule meets your high school’s graduation
requirements. Be sure to plan for any additional requirements for admission to a four-year public
college or university or a tech prep educational program at a community college.
