Academic Planning

  • The academic planning process is one that requires both a one-year perspective as well as a four-year one. When students are planning the classes they should take, they should look to work backwards from their long-term goals. First and foremost, students should ensure that they are taking the courses required for graduation both in New York State as well as in our specific district. Beyond that, they may also want to plan for their long-term interests. If they plan to attend a BOCES program in their junior year, for example, then they want to be sure to complete the required courses needed in order to be able to graduate on time. Students planning on pursuing a college degree may want to consider which courses would challenge them now and which ones will best prepare them for their future course of study.
