At the outset, we create an Individualized Graduation Plan for each student. We revisit this plan each semester.

  • What are your student’s goals?
    • Trade school?
    • Work force?
    • 4 year college?
    • Community college?
    • Just getting a diploma?
  • What credits does student need to graduate and meet their goals?
  • What credits should student earn this semester?
    • Credits student earns naturally
    • How to earn credits in interesting ways?

Meetings then morph to Mentoring meetings- We discuss personal goals around what teens naturally pursue.

  • We find interesting ways to earn credits
  • We discuss learning goals, what they are learning, new interesting ideas to pursue, overcoming difficulties
  • We share information, question ideas, search for answers together
  • We write together
