4 2 Career Preparation Choices Beyond High School SCHOOLS Colleges/Universities Community Colleges Business, Technical, and Vocational Schools MILITARY Variety of Skill Training Financial Assistance with College WORK On-the-Job Training Apprenticeship The purpose of the following pages is to provide information to help you explore career options and decide which is best for you. In order to make the best decision, it is necessary for you to examine your interests, abilities, and talents. After determining what those are, review the career pathways and consider the possibilities in each pathway. The intent is not for you to decide on a specific occupation for the rest of your life, but to focus on a broader career path to help you select high school courses. Using these pages will aid you in planning for your future. Career pathways provide focus and relevance to your course selections throughout high school. Each career pathway provides a suggested program of study for careers from entry level to levels requiring a fouryear degree and beyond. No matter which career pathway you select, Noblesville High School offers you an excellent background of courses with content that prepares you for a postsecondary 2 year technical school, a 4 year college, a community college, and apprenticeship program or a high-wage job. WHAT CAREER PATHWAYS ARE AVAILABLE? Following is an overview of NHS Career Pathways. More detailed information for each career pathway can be found on the NHS Guidance website. Please review the pathways and the NHS courses related to them. This information will help you to choose elective courses to supplement the Minimum, Core 40, or Academic Honors graduation criteria.

5 Class Schedule Changes There is no drop and add period at NHS. Students have until June 15 at the end of each school year to make course selection changes if space is available in the requested course. The Director of Guidance and/or Administration must approve exceptions to this policy. Students and parents should check the schedule carefully to make sure all classes for the student's selected diploma are scheduled. Call the Main Campus Guidance Office immediately at if you have questions or concerns about a student's graduation progress. Auditing Courses Students who have earned a credit in a course with a grade lower than a "C-" may retake the course to better master its content or to meet minimum grade requirements to qualify for an Academic Honors Diploma. Only audits of the same course are allowed; a similar course of a lower level of difficulty (i.e. unweighted grade) may not be considered an audit of a more difficult course. Students who plan to retake the second semester of a yearlong course may also retake the first semester of that course. Both the original grade and the grade earned when the class is retaken will appear on the student's transcript and be factored into the student's GPA. No additional credit is earned when a student audits a course. Audits under other circumstances must be approved by the principal or designee. Requests to audit or retake a course may be denied by the principal/designee if sections are overfilled. NHS Learning Lab Grades The Learning Laboratory program s mission is to provide NHS students the opportunity to earn high school credits through varying instructional strategies in a smaller, more independent environment. Students attend a three-hour academic component combined with a work or Career Center, volunteer service, or regular half-day NHS schedule component. The Learning Laboratory program is intended to meet the needs of those students at risk of not completing high school, helping them graduate and transition into further education or on-the-job training. It is designed to recognize each student as an individual with a unique combination of needs, concerns, desires, attitudes, and abilities. Instruction occurs in an independent or small group study program in a lab setting. Students receive instruction in different forms through computer software, textbooks, and projects. Operation: The Learning Laboratory is located at Noblesville High School. Morning LL meets from 7:35 to 10:35. Afternoon LL meets from 11:35 to 2:35. During the other three hours of the school day, students work, volunteer, or follow a regular high school schedule. Additionally, some students attend for 90 minutes every other day. This group includes students who are significantly behind in credits. Prerequisite: Admission to the Learning Laboratory is by application. Students are evaluated by the guidance counselors who recommend them for consideration to the program. Students showing a strong desire to graduate demonstrated through their choices and attendance receive first placement into the Learning Lab. Credit Recovery Program Credit Recovery is an option for students who have previously failed classes. Upon referral, students must submit an application signed by the parents requesting that the student be accepted into the credit recovery program. This program uses NovaNET, a web-based curriculum offering students individualized programming for academic credits towards graduation requirements. Student Selection Criteria: Able to read at the 7th grade level Credit deficient by at least 2 credits per grade level (grades 9-12) 3 Vocational School J. Everett Light Career Center Grades 11, 12 (3 credits per semester) JEL provides vocational and technical training for juniors and seniors who are interested in preparing for a specific occupation. Students should apply to their counselor in the spring of their sophomore year for a two-year program or the spring of their junior year for a one-year program. Students are required to maintain satisfactory attendance and behavior for the entire year. Students may ride a bus provided by NHS except for those students enrolled in the Cosmetology program. Students must provide their own transportation in this program because the program times do not coincide with NHS school time. Prerequisite: Satisfactorily progressing toward high school graduation and application approval from the high school administration. (If NHS is unable to send all applicants due to quotas established by JEL, parents/guardians and students may be required to meet with a screening committee.) Enrollment in these programs is for a full year. Changes are not permitted at semester s end. Students interested in entering a vocational program at JEL are expected to attend an open house there in the spring. Testing Program PSAT/NMSQT [Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test] The PSAT measures critical reasoning, math, and non-essay writing skills and is administered only in October to sophomores and all college-bound juniors. High scoring juniors may qualify for eligibility in the National Merit Scholarship Program. ACT Aspire The ACT Aspire program helps 9th grade students build a solid foundation for future academic and career success. It is a comprehensive guidance resource that helps students measure their current academic development, explore career/training options, and make plans for the remaining years of high school and post-graduation years. As a "pre-act" test, ACT Aspire is a powerful predictor of success on the ACT. PLAN includes four mulitple-choice tests: English, Math, Reading, and Science. SAT [Scholastic Aptitude Test] The SAT measures critical reading, math, and essay writing. Tests are given 6-7 times each school year, including tests at NHS in October, January, and May. Most colleges require this or the ACT as part of the admissions process. Juniors should take the two college admissions tests in the spring semester and retest the following fall (if needed). Online registration is available at SAT Subject Tests The SAT Subject Tests measure areas of English, advanced math, science, social studies and world language. Up to three hour-long tests can be taken at any one test session. These tests are required at some highly selective schools as part of their admission procedure either for entry purposes or for placement. Students should check specific college criteria to see if the SAT Subject Tests is required. Test dates are the same as the SAT. Registration is online. ACT [American College Test] The ACT measures verbal, math, reading, science reasoning, and writing skills. Most colleges will acccept either the ACT or the SAT for admission. Since formats differ, it is recommended that NHS students take each test at least once to compare scores earned. The test is administered 5 times each school year, including September, October and February at NHS. Online registration is at actstudent.org. AP (Advanced Placement) Exams Students in AP courses at NHS are encouraged to take the corresponding AP exams in May. Most colleges grant credit for college courses covering the same material to students who have scored at or above certain levels on a 1-5 scale. Registration is at NHS in March. Students scoring 3 or above will receive credit at Indiana's state schools. ASVAB(Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) Given in the junior year to military-bound students, ASVAB measures aptitude in a variety of areas including math, English, writing, science, and mechanical and technical abilities. It is also one of the best interest inventories and can be very helpful in career decision making. There is no obligation to the military.

6 Alternative PE Credit The Alternative PE credit option is in effect beginning the school year. There will be no credits granted for any previous school year. Students may choose to complete an Alternative PE application for one or two of the required PE credits for graduation. Students/Parents may submit an Alternative PE application for the following: ISHAA athletics: Baseball Basketball Cross Country Football Golf Tennis Gymnastics Soccer Softball 4 Swimming Track Volleyball Wrestling Marching Band one season consists of summer marching through the end of semester one. Cheerleading one credit may be earned per year of cheerleading. Dance one credit may be earned per year of dance. Golden Guard one credit may be earned per year of Golden Guard. A complete season is defined as first practice to final event. The student will participate regularly in physical activity, demonstrated by participation in over 90% of group activities (injury free) or 66% due to major injury (NHS athletic trainer or physician signature required). The coach or activity sponsor determines whether the student meets the eligibility requirements. Students may not participate in Athletic Weights until the Alternative PE credit contract is received. It may take students more than one school year to complete the PE requirements. All contracts must be turned into the NHS guidance office. One contract must be signed and submitted for each activity. For example if a student participates in football and track, or marching band and wrestling a contract must be submitted for both activities. Student participation in any activity not listed above is not eligible for the Alternate PE credit. Students should enter the grade level for the year they are participating in the activity. For example: sophomores who file the contract for the following school year should list their grade level as 11. It is the students responsibility to contact their guidance counselor to make a schedule change by June 15 if they wish to earn credit through the Alternate PE credit application but are currently enrolled in PE for the following school year. Students must complete their Alternate PE credits by the end of the junior year. Seniors are not eligible for the Alternate PE credit due to possible injury in the activity. All PE Waivers must be turned in to the NHS Guidance office no later than June 15 for the following school year for both semesters. High School Credit Earned in Middle School for Math and World Language Students may obtain high school credit for high school World Language completed prior to entering high school. Students and their parents need to carefully read the following guidelines and requirements. Courses taken for high school credit will count towards the grade point average. A student must earn a grade of C or higher both semesters in order to earn credit. Students who earn a C or higher will be placed in Spanish II for the 9th grade year. Courses taken for high school credit while a student is in middle will count toward Core 40 or Core 40 with Academic Honors Diploma world language credit requirements. Students may obtain high school credit for high school mathematics courses completed prior to entering high school. Students and their parents need to carefully read the following guidelines and requirements. Courses taken for high school credit will count towards the grade point average. A student must earn a grade of C or higher both semesters in order to earn credit. A student receiving a B- or better each semester, whether or not for credit, cannot retake the course for credit at the high school. A student earning a C- or below either semester should consider retaking the course to meet the pre-requisites for the next level course within the discipline. Any student who retakes the course will receive only the credit and grade earned at 9th grade or above. Courses taken for high school credit while a student is in middle school will not count toward Core 40 or Core 40 with Academic Honors Diploma math credit requirements Letters of Understanding accepting credit for both courses will be available in the spring of the 8th grade year and must be returned to the NHS Guidance Office no later than June 15 following the 8th grade year. Students may choose to accept credit in one or both areas.

Students may choose courses offered through Indiana University's Advanced College Program, Ivy Tech State College, and Vincennes University during the school day. Students may also choose to take college courses at any local accredited college or university in the evening. Research suggests and Noblesville High School believes that students who take early college courses increase their likelihood of success in college because they become aware of the increased demands of college-level work. Students and parents are strongly encouraged to investigate the transferability of college courses before paying for them. AP (Advanced Placement): Courses offer high school students the opportunity to experience rigorous and accelerated academic courses in a wide variety of subjects. Courses are based on college-level curricula and include experiences in intensive, reflective, and analytical thinking. Most colleges grant credit for successfully completing AP exams in May. AP courses are the most universally accepted courses for college credit. Refer to individual course descriptions. ACP (Advanced College Project): A cooperative program between Indiana University and selected high schools within Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio, ACP offers college credit to students who enroll in IU courses offered at their high schools. Courses are taught following rigorous college-level curricula. Credit may be earned by successfully completing the course and paying IU tuition. Not all colleges accept the IU credit. Refer to individual college criteria. Students must have a minimum of a 2.7 gpa to receive college credit for ACP courses. Most AP/ACP/Honors courses have weighted grades (see Student Handbook). Summer projects may be required. All courses are full-year courses with the exception of Economics AP/ACP, Government AP, and Psychology AP. Initial identification for enrollment in honors/ap/acp courses is based upon the following criteria: 1) Past student achievement and performance - Teachers rate and provide input into whether the student has demonstrated the past achievement and/or performance to be successful in the gifted/talented program. 2) Parent or student interest- Often individual students do not meet all the criteria for enrollment in advanced courses. However, because of their work habits and motivation some students strive for and achieve excellence in whatever they undertake and need a more demanding curriculum to be challenged. Students who do not meet standard honors criteria are advised to carefully consider the following: a. Because grades for advanced classes are weighted, these courses require outside preparation above and beyond that of regular level courses, including summer reading and/or projects. Each course requires an unusual amount of time. b. Honors courses may involve in-depth independent study and out-of-class work, and the material may not be provided in the traditional classroom lecture style. c. In order to enroll in advanced courses, students must demonstrate advanced skills and abilities within the subject area. d. Advanced classes are meant to cause students to stretch, reach and persevere in order to succeed. They therefore require research, analysis, and interpretation of data from multiple sources. e. Teachers in advanced classes are expected to be demanding and challenging. It is further expected that all work, regardless of the academic area, will demonstrate advanced writing skills. It is assumed that students enrolling in advanced courses possess these skills and will prepare all work to the best of their abilities. Note: the June 15 deadline for schedule changes applies to Honors, AP/ACP courses Criteria for Advanced Courses English Language Arts Standardized scores 95th percentile ISTEP+/ End of Course Assessments Students must pass the End of Course Assessment (ECA) in Algebra I and English 10. Students will take the ECA in Algebra I in the Spring of 8th or 9th grade. If the student does not pass, there will be multiple opportunities through grade 12 to retake the assessment. Students will take the ECA in English 10 in the Spring of 10th grade. If a student does not pass, there will be multiple opportunities through grade 12 to retake the assessment. Students are required to take the Biology ECA but do not have to pass it to meet graduation requirements. Students must also complete a minimum of 46 credits and earn one of the three Noblesville High School diplomas in order to graduate. Students may receive a waiver from passing the ECAs if they meet all of the following criteria: 1. Pass all courses required for graduation 2. Earn a C average in 34 required courses 3. Achieve 95% attendance over 4 years (excluding excused absences.) 4. Retake the ECAs annually 5.

8 Diploma Criteria Indiana General High School Diploma Indiana's Core 40 curriculum provides the academic foundation all students need to succeed in college and the workforce, and the Core 40 Diploma is the basic Indiana high school diploma. To graduate with less than Core 40, the following formal opt-out process must be completed: The student, the student's parent/guardian, and the student's counselor (or another staff member who assists students in course selection) meet to discuss the student's progress. The student's career and course plan is reviewed. The student's parent/guardian determines whether the student will achieve greater educational benefits by completing the general curriculum or the Core 40 curriculum. If the decision is made to opt out of Core 40, the student is required to complete the course and credit requirements for a general diploma, and the career/ academic sequence the student will pursue is determined. Explanation of Credits A student may earn one (1) credit in courses scheduled to meet for one semester. Credit totals for all diplomas must be earned in grades Courses taken in middle school (e.g. Mathmatics and World Language) will be acknowledged on the transcript, but will not count toward total number of credits needed for graduation or be factored into GPA. 6 Core 40 with Academic Honors Diploma Graduating class of 2015 English Mathematics Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Higher Level Mathematics (credit earned in high school after class of 2011) Science in Biology I in Chemistry I or Physics I or Integrated Chemistry/Physics 2 Additional Credits in Chemistry, Physics, Earth/Space Science, Advanced Biology Social Studies in US History 1 Credit in US Government 1 Credit in Economics 2 credits in World History or 2 credits in Geography and History of the World World Language 6- Must include 6 credits in one language or in 2 languages (credit earned in high school after class of 2011) Physical Education I, II Health Fine Arts Electives 1 Credit 6- Complete one of the following: Two Advanced Placement courses (four credits) and corresponding AP Exams Academic, transferable dual high school/college courses resulting in 6 college credits Complete a combination of AP courses (2 credits), & corresponding AP exams, & dual H.S./college credit coure(s) from the Core Transfer Library (3 credits).
