Curriculum Handbook – Program Introduction

This academic and career planning guide contains valuable information to assist you in successfully completing your high school years. The ultimate goal is the same for everyone, for all our students to be lifelong learners with satisfying careers.

One of the most important decisions you will make is choosing a career that will be rewarding and satisfying. Your career search will combine looking at the type of work you enjoy with the education and training needed for that particular career and the kind of lifestyle you will be able to lead. The term “career” is not just a job but a combination of all these factors.

It takes time, research, and exposure to different careers to help you in the process of deciding what path to choose after high school. It is never too early to start thinking about your future career plans. This planning guide is designed to help you realize that you do have many choices, and you should use your time at BKW to research and evaluate these choices.

These next four years of high school provide the opportunity to obtain the necessary education, training, skills, and experience to prepare you for your future.

To increase your chances of success, take the most challenging academic courses available, become involved in extracurricular activities in and out of school, and work to your potential!

Good luck!
