IEM Schools offer an expansive high school program providing maximum choice right up to your graduation day! We have a proven track record of our graduates getting into state schools like UCLA and Berkeley, as well as Ivy League Schools like Columbia and Stanford. If you are prepping for college, a-g is the way to go. Is your student planning on going to a community college after high school? Do you know you can get a head start on college while still in high school? Concurrent enrollment classes can catapult you into your college journey. With free tuition at most community colleges now for high school students and IEM instructional funding to pay for books and materials, your high school student can take college courses completely free. Are you career oriented? Every year we have students graduate with a career certification in hand and move right into the workforce, with the ability to support themselves on a mid-level career wage. We have partnerships to prepare you now to start a career as soon as you graduate. No matter what path you decide our Guidance department personnel are tuned in to the rules and laws you need to know about your path of choice to be successful.
Expansive high school program
IEM Schools are proud to offer our high school students many different options to meet the variety of different ways our students learn. For our college bound students, we offer 500 a-g courses, including AP and Honors courses, 100 of them written by IEM and are designed for use by homeschooled students, tailored for student choice as they offer a number of assignment choices for each unit. Students seeking other options after high school can complete classes in our non a-g program with customized or prepared syllabi. Some students prefer to learn in an online environment and some in-person. Thanks to our vendors, we offer both!
Career Technical Education (CTE) Partnerships
Is your student career oriented? High school is a great time to explore careers and study deeply one or two of them, sometimes even completing a pathway and earning a certification to work in a mid-level career. For those who have no idea what career they might like, we can help you with interest surveys. For students just beginning to think about career interests, we have a variety of 1 semester courses designed to introduce you to the career. For students who know they want to graduate with a mid-level career certification in hand, our CTE partnerships can help them earn their high school diploma while preparing for a career at the same time. Guidance coordinators can help students design a CTE pathway to be able to be certified at graduation. Our pathways can include both online classes, in-person classes, and even community college classes. Some of our CTE/career exploration partnerships are listed below:
- Brighton College-12 career pathways leading to certification in a mid-level career
- eDynamic Learning–career exploration courses
- COMPREHEND Learning (coming Fall 2018)
When you are ready to plan your high school path meet with one of our Guidance Coordinators from each of our IEM Schools. Every student at IEM Schools has the opportunity to participate in a meeting with their parent, Education Specialist, and Guidance Coordinator beginning in eighth grade to create an individualized 4 year high school plan. During each of their 9-12th years, these meetings occur again to ensure they are on track to achieve their goals or make changes as goals change. Want a little preview?
