High School Endorsements
What is an Endorsement?
Endorsements consist of a related series of courses that are grouped together by interest or skill set. They provide students with in-depth knowledge of a subject area. Students pick their electives based on their endorsement. The endorsement a student picks in high school does not predetermine a college or university plan. But it is a good way to determine if a student is interested in a particular field before heading off to a college or university.
There are 5 Endorsements and Humble ISD offers all 5: (click the endorsement to learn more information)
What Does That Mean For My Middle School Student?
6th graders begin learning about their skills and interests through inventories in Naviance. In 7th grade, students will utilize Naviance to learn about all of the endorsements. In 8th grade, students will select their endorsement and create their 4 year high school plan.
Why Start So Early?
While it may seem early to start thinking about their high school plans, it has been shown that having a plan in place helps students be more successful. Students will be able to make changes to these plans, so the process in 8th grades does not have to be stressful. Humble ISD offers many opportunities for students to leave high school with college credits and even a license or certification for a particular field or skill. It is in the students best interest to create a road map early so they can take advantage of these opportunities.
