What opportunities will my learner have to explore careers before they choose an academy?
Our PK-12 system is focused on the whole child. Learners begin exploring their interests in elementary and continue through middle school.
• West Fargo middle schools will implement a 7th grade “Career and Academy Exploration” course to survey learner interests and expose them to the academy model. All 8th grade learners will work with counselors to create their 4-year Choice Ready rolling plan prior to high school registration.
• All eighth-grade learners will select an academy of interest to start their high school experience based on their 8th grade rolling plan.
• Learners will have the option to change academies each year during the registration process.
