Youth Apprenticeship


The Youth Options program is an opportunity for students in grades 11 and 12 to attend a Wisconsin postsecondary institution to take one or more courses for high school and college credit. Interested students and parents should talk with staff in the high school guidance office and the postsecondary institution to decide on the appropriate course or courses

Youth Options applications are due in the high school guidance office by October 1 for spring 2015 college courses. The application form is available on this page and information can be typed in and then printed. Copies are also available in the guidance office.

The Youth Options Brochure and the Youth Options FAQ, found on this page, can answer many of your questions about this program. If you have additional questions, please contact your School Counselor for help.
