Congratulations! You are at the beginning of your educational life. Everything is open to you and you should concentrate on making the most of your time in high school. Now some of you "go-getter" students might already be thinking about becoming doctors or lawyers. That's great but remember it is much too early in your educational career to limit your class selection to particular fields of study or career choices. When you select your freshman year classes, you should be seeking courses that will generally enrich and challenge you. There is no one curriculum that is best but you can't go wrong if you strive to pursue a standard college preparatory program:
- 4 years of English
- 3–4 years of math
- 3–4 years of laboratory sciences
- 3 or more years of social sciences
- Study of a foreign language
The merits of this program of study is that you will lay a solid foundation for a college education in any major.
