Youth Options _Due Date March 1, 2017 for first semester 2017-2018 junior and seniors. (re-Posted 2-20-17)
Attention current sophomores and juniors! Are you interested in taking a college-level course while in high school that is online or on a college campus that we currently do not offer? If so, please consider Wisconsin’s Youth Options program. Youth Options is one of many post-secondary experiences the School District of New Berlin offers. We want each student to have an opportunity to explore a post-secondary or college learning experience in high school in order to:
Assess college and/or career readiness
Gain a college and/or career admission credential
Assess appropriate rigor for demonstrated proficiency in a content area
Inform a post-secondary education investment
Earn college credits or test into possible credits or courses
In addition to the District’s 21+ AP courses, students have access to a number of other options that provide transcripted college credit: Course Options (courses taken at some post-secondary institutions or other school district part time, such as e-Achieve), Dual Enrollment Academies (WCTC), Project Lead The Way (MSOE), and a variety of additional courses offered on-site by college-level professors from WCTC , UW-Waukesha and UW-Milwaukee or SDNB staff certified to teach the class by the post-secondary institution awarding credit. Students submit any college transcripts earned in high school for consideration as part of the college admission process. Students can also take CLEP assessments, a credit by examination option, to gain college credits at select universities. Please see your counselor for details on these options and visit this site for updates throughout the year.
