Career Prep A Summer ACCESS Course Information
Information in regards to this course went live this morning. You can find all the pertinent information at the Curriculum and Scheduling website.
This is a full course squeezed into a four week time period (June 8-25, 2020). This is recommended for highly motivated students who are taking band and a foreign language, neither of which can be taken for a semester at HTMS.
HTMS Counselors do our best to not pair Career Prep A with advanced electives such as Honors Choir, Pre-Engineering II, Art II, Theater II, etc., however, sometimes that is our only option in regards to meeting all of a student’s specific requests. We cannot tell you at this time what elective will pair with Career Prep A for your 8th-grade schedule.
Please pay attention to due dates, fees, zoom meetings, etc.
