GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

Youth Options - Due Date 03/01/17 for First Semester 2017-2018 Junior & Seniors (posted 2/17/17)

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

Students who are interested should see their counselor and see our Youth Options website.

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.
