The short descriptions below are a brief overview of the tasks at hand that you student will need to complete over the course of 4 years. It is certainly not a complete list but it gives you an idea of the magnitude of the tasks your student will need to complete by the end of high school. Please consult with your child when determining what package is right for them. Often times parents don’t know the full scope of what their child needs to accomplish simply because it hasn’t been communicated to you. Knowing what you are in for will help you more easily determine what package will best serve your child’s needs.
