Your future, your choice...CHOOSE Youth Options
Youth Options- Challenge yourself academically and earn college credits while your school district pays for your class(s).
Wisconsin's Youth Options program provides opportunities for high school juniors and seniors who are in good academic standing to take postsecondary courses at technical college that can count for both college credit and toward high school graduation. Interested students apply to their school district asking for approval to take one or more college courses each semester of their junior or senior year. By approving the student to take college course(s), the school district will pay for the student's tuition and fee associated with the cost of the course(s).
