Schools of Study Examples
Within the Elkhart High School 10-12 grade campus, students will learn to their passion and interests.
For example, if a student believes she may want to be a realtor, we would encourage her to find her educational home in our School of Business and International Relations. Here, she’ll experience curriculum that is taught to the required standards, but in a way that is meaningful to her passion and goals. What this may mean is that she will learn English Language Arts standards through reading about business practices, contracts, negotiations, and marketing. Her electives may include foreign language and photography, where she will learn tools to help in her future career. Since she is learning the required standards at each grade level, if she decides to change between grade levels, she can transition to a different school of study. We strongly believe that the time to explore career fields and make changes is while a child has the safety of home and a free education, rather than after three (or more) years of college.
The following are examples of potential passions/interests that students may study while at Elkhart High School. Curriculum and specific pathways are still being developed by our transition principals, counselors, and lead teachers, but these examples provide an idea to how a student may learn to his or her interest.
