ACADEMIC PLANNING
Through high school & beyond!

Through Naviance, students can create a five year academic plan - 4 years of high school and plans for life afterwards.  Following the CPS graduation requirements, found here, students can select possible course choice for their four years of high school.

Through engagement with guidance from parents/guardians, counselors, teachers, mentors and other adults, students will begin the develop their ideas for their future pursuits.  Academic plans can be altered to fit their pursuits.  Counselors will discuss the academic plans with students when programming for the next school year.
