Time to plan for an amazing Senior year! What does that mean? Giving you an edge on your college or career, over others. Don't compete with Lanier peers, compete with everyone else. And Georgia has a big State initiative to listen to companies and train workers as fast and as well as possible, called the "High Demand Career Initiative". They WANT to help you get that job!
What are your options? What is your timeline? That's the goal of this next project.
We anticipate enrollment extra early this year, possibly January. So, our goal for the next 4 weeks is to have a very clear plan to get YOU where YOU want to go.
Some of the main options include:
- Dual Enrollment
- Move On When Ready
- Maxwell High training
The CDAT plan for our Seniors is to get you out of here. That is, getting you to experience work or college before you leave here, so you are even more ready for the real thing. Isn't that the goal of high school?
Here's a bit more info on the choices:
- Dual Enrollment (now included in Move on When Ready) - you are enrolled in BOTH college and high school at the same time. Students have chosen to attend many schools: GGC, UNG, GTT, and more. You get high school AND college credit, and the high school credit counts as AP credit!
- Move On When Ready -
- Maxwell High School - it counts as high school credit, but you usually get four credits in 3 hours! For example, Math or Science are embedded in your auto repair or cosmetology.
- Internship - most are not paid, but some are. We've seen $20/hr at one! The key to an internship is that you are learning about a job that you are interested in. You can do 1, 2, or 3 credits. Along with this, we encourage our 12th graders to take online Language Arts with us. Taking an online class is a whole different skill, and you probably need to learn how to learn.
- We will learn HOW to create your OWN internship possibilities, going forward all students will find their own, unless an employer requests a specific skill set.
