LCISD Endorsement & Programs of Study

High School Course Planning

The state of Texas requires all students to choose a program of study upon entering high school.  This includes selecting one of the five Endorsements in addition to a more specific pathway of courses to complete before graduation.   

To take the stress out of this process, LCISD is providing detailed information on each Endorsement/Pathway combination here.  Below you will find:
-- A flowchart showing the sequence of courses required for each option 
-- A document with course descriptions relevant to each pathway from our Course Selection Guide


Career Plans in Skyward

Students utilize the Career Plan feature in Skyward to choose classes.  By allowing students to look at all 4 years of high school, we hope this will provide more guidance to our families in navigating the course selection and planning process.
