Four-year Educational Plan

The Four-Year Educational Plan helps you take a long-range view of planning classes for both the upcoming year and for each of your remaining years of high school to ensure a holistic approach to your Concordia experience. This process is not so much about the courses that are ultimately selected, as it is a conversation starter between a parent and child regarding future plans, interests and skills.

For students who do not complete all four years of high school at Concordia, eligible credits from their previous high school will be added to those courses completed at Concordia to determine when graduation requirements have been met.
