Navigation

Purpose

Navigation 101 empowers students to make the education system work for them, so they can take charge of their own future. This personalized learning plan helps students become contributing, productive citizens by understanding how to navigate high school. Students will graduate with a specific plan for life after high school that involves college, work, military, technical school, industrial certification, or another option.

Required Components

Successful completion annually of ALL three required components will satisfy the graduation requirement for the High School and Beyond Plan. See link for more information.
