Helpful Tips for ALL Students to make the most of your high school years

If you wait until your Senior year to strive to get your GPA up, you may miss out on scholarships and college entrance requirements.  It is very important to stay organized and study from the start.  Take advantage of the tutoring opportunities and check JCAMPUS frequently.  Take responsibility for your behavior, and grades.  It is your future!!!
  2. Take challenging classes and work to the best of your ability.  You will never regret working hard and doing your best.
  3. Discuss your ideas about future plans and college with your family.  Explore college search websites.  Organize a file for college brochures and information.  Use the counseling website to familiarize yourself with graduation and TOPS requirements.  Build a list a colleges in which you are interested.  Pay attention to what each school requires.
  4. The EOC required test subjects for Algebra I, English I, English II, Biology I, Geometry and U. S. History.

****Students must have 100% COURSE COMPLETION to earn high school credit****

All grade levels are required to update their Individual Graduation Plan (IGP).

What is an Individual Graduation Plan?

The state of Louisiana requires every student to have an Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) on file.  Beginning in the eighth grade (8th), students will fill out a form and update annually.  Each student’s IGP lists the required core/foundational courses to be taken all four years of high school.  This plan shall be reviewed annually and updated as necessary.  There are two paths leading to one diploma:  TOPS University diploma (College Diploma) and the TOPS Tech diploma (Jump Start Diploma).  The TOPS University diploma path prepares students for a four year university.  The TOPS Tech diploma path prepares students for the two year technical school, community college, military, or employment.  TOPS Tech students graduate with a specific skill and certification in a high value industry.  A copy of the Individual Graduation Plan is available by clicking on the words click here.  Parents should sign the form along with the student and return to the school.  Individual Graduation Plan Form
