3-5 Year Graduation Plan

image003Online Homeschooling Graduation Plan

Have a Plan!

As a student at Christian Educators Academy, you will have the opportunity to create your own custom 3-5 year online homeschooling graduation plan.  This is your own plan to help you achieve your dreams and goals.  As a Christian private school student, you can take electives such as Bible, missions, ministry work and community service, and earn credit.  Your personal graduation plan will include not only your academic plans – what core subjects and electives you will take – but also what outside activities (sports, arts, hobbies, clubs) you plan to participate in, and what skills and talents you want to develop.

Why is this important?

Because God created you uniquely, with a purpose and destiny that is different from everyone else.  We want to help you realize that purpose, and right now you have opportunities that you might not have later in life.  Having a 3-5 year plan will not only help you reach your own goals, it will also put you in the best position for getting into college, or whatever ambitions you have after graduation.  Get credit for the things you have a passion for.

The template for your 3-5 year graduation plan is provided in our parent/student handbook, which is sent to you when you enroll.  The courses which are most often included in the plan, and when they are most commonly taken, are detailed in the list below.  We will work with you to customize the selection and timing of courses based on your individual needs and goals.  We will also work with you to include your individual extra-curricular activities in your plan.

The 3-5 year plan should be reviewed and updated once a year.  Over time, your goals and needs may change.  You may identify new areas you want to develop, and you may decide not to pursue or change parts of your plan.  Making changes and adjustments is a normal part of life.
