"What classes should I take?"
In order to assist students in choosing courses that are right for them, we have created Educational Plans (below) that are aligned to programs offered here at Luna, while ensuring that the coursework listed will transfer to other colleges and universities. Each of the Educational Plans will serve as a companion form to the Next Step Plan that should have been completed at the High Schools. For more information on the Next Step PLan, visit the PED webpage here: Next-step-plan
Students are encouraged to take courses that fall under their chosen educational plan in order to promote certificate or degree completion, while at the same time, meeting their elective requirements at their high school. Deviating from these plans or changing plans is allowed, although not advised.
