What is a high school graduation plan?

Indiana’s high school graduation plan keeps you on track to graduate. It begins in grade 6, when you will commit to completing high school. You can work with your high school counselor and your parents or guardians to create the plan here.

In grades 8 and 9, you will start planning your high school courses with your counselor. Read more about Indiana’s Core 40 and International Baccalaureate diploma options here.

In grades 10 through 12, you will review your graduation plan at least once a year to make sure you’re still on track to graduate with the diploma you want. You will also keep track of ISTEP+ and End-of-Course Assessment scores, which will help determine whether you can continue to the next grade. College entrance exams like the SAT and ACT are required for college admissions, so you’ll keep track of those, too. Read more about these tests here.

How can I keep my graduation plan up-to-date?

The easiest way to keep track of your graduation plan is to create an account with the Indiana Career Explorer. You’ll be able to track your progress, print off pages for your parents to sign, and more. The Indiana Career Explorer also offers the career interest inventories you will take as part of your graduation plan.
