10th and 11th GRADERS: If you are interested in taking FTCC High School Connections classes next school year, this is for you.

I have attached a video that describes several aspects of the program. Please watch the video completely before filling out the paperwork. If you have any questions after watching the video, please reach out to me via email me (Melissa Matthews).

Please remember that while there is no tuition cost, you will be responsible for purchasing any textbooks or materials. I have attached a spreadsheet that lists estimated costs. There are 2 tabs in this spreadsheet, one for college transfer classes and one for CTE pathways. Please take the time to review the costs and discuss it with your guardians before you submit your paperwork. There is currently no financial aid available to help with these costs.

I have attached the enrollment form and student/parent responsibility form. Both of these forms will need to be completed and returned to me. FTCC is closed, so do not submit the paperwork to them. I will process the paperwork after you submit it to me, and if there is room in your schedule for the classes I will get it to FTCC for you. The final attachment is a link to the CCS High School Course Selection Guide. The information for High School Connections starts on page 56. Detailed information for the individual CTE classes that are offered as part of the pathways starts on page 123.  Let me know if you have any questions.
