Let's start with your END GAME which is Graduating High School.  When thinking about what classes to pick you should also consider your future goals.  What are you interested in doing as a career?  Do you need to go to college to do that job?  Do you need specialized training? If you have no idea-DON'T panic-it is ok.  You have plenty of time however, a career assessment might be helpful.  You can find links to a career assessment on the Career web page under the Counseling tab. 

You might want to plan as if you are going to a college or university so that when you do decide what you want to do, you have what you need to move forward.  Here is what you need to meet your end game goal and your future goal...
