This is a really good idea I found on the WA OSPI site :
The High School and Beyond Plan gets all students thinking about their future and how to get the most out of high school, so that they’re ready to pursue their adult lives, no matter what direction they plan to take. This plan should include God’s calling in their life.
Ideally, students write their plan in 8th or 9th grade and then continue to revise it throughout high school to accommodate changing interests or goals. Students should be encouraged to include the following elements in their plan:
- Their personal story – what experiences, interests and goals are shaping who they are now and who they want to become
- Their learning style
- Their goals for high school – what their four years of high school look like, including classes, extracurricular activities, sports, a job, etc.
- Their goals for immediately after high school – a student’s plan should include the classes needed in preparation for a 2- to 4-year college, vocational or technical school, certificate program or the workforce.
Further provided is this Guideline:
