As part of their Navigation 101 advisory sessions, students are asked to develop a number of different plans for the future each year. By thinking carefully about different aspects of their goals for the future, students learn how to connect what they are doing now to what they hope to achieve… and then have the incentive to do better in school. Navigation 101 plans include:
Goals for each school year, prepared each September for the year ahead.
Plans for extracurricular and service-learning activities.
An academic improvement plan, prepared after reviewing first quarter grades.
College and career plans based on what those goals require in terms of academics.
Financial plans, focused on how to budget, use, and save money.
A coursework plan to help guide the student in registering for academic courses each year.
A four-year plan, updated each year, to allow students to think big about the longer term.
