English and Science and Math - oh my!Figuring out which classes to take to get ready for college can be tough. And of course, taking those classes can be even tougher. But don't worry - your hard work will pay off in the long run, and we've got teachers and counselors dedicated to helping you get through. Here's a list of classes you should take if you plan to go to college. And remember - if you have questions, don't be shy about asking your guidance counselor for extra help. He or she will be your go-to person for scheduling throughout high school.
Reading and Language Arts - 4 credits (usually English 9, 10, 11, and 12)
Math - you'll need 4 credits, and at least 3 of those must be Algebra I and above
Science - 4 credits, all above CATS 9 (CATS 9 is typically your 9th grade science)
Foreign Language - 2 credits (in the same language)
Those are the basics - but you'll also want to take classes that match your major or career interest, and it's always a good idea to sprinkle in some electives that will allow you to try new things or other stuff that interests you.
