Two pathways to graduation

During the first two years of high school, students focus on building on the knowledge and skills they gained in previous grades. Every 9th and 10th grade student will take core academic classes to work towards a diploma.


Following the student’s 10th grade year, a student may choose to work toward a Jump Start TOPS Tech Pathway or pursue the TOPS University Pathway. Decisions are made with counseling and guidance, based on the student’s interests, capabilities, and ambitions. 

John is interested in a career as a welder. He is on the Jump Start TOPS Tech graduation path & is already earning certification for his trade that will help him get a job after graduation.
Jennifer is wanting to go to college after high school and pursue a degree in education. She is on the TOPS University diploma path.
Mary took a nursing class in high school, and she decided to pursue this as a career after graduation. She is on the Jump Start TOPS Tech path and is already earning certification she can use after gradution.
