The Ninth Grade Program is designed to help students transition into high school, and to encourage students to take full advantage of all of the programming options offered.
The Tenth Grade Program is designed to continue promoting optimal student performance while introducing the concept of exploring different career opportunities.
The Eleventh Grade Program continues to support each student with their social, emotional, and academic needs. The primary focus becomes post-high school planning with an emphasis on the college and career search and planning process.
The Twelfth Grade Program continues to promote the student as a whole individual, preparing to enter the college, military, and/or career world. A special focus on the college application process is given at this time.
