Academic Planning for the PG Student is a new series we’re running in 2024 that focuses on the trajectory of the PG student throughout their educational career. This month, May, we’ll discuss high school. What types of educational opportunities do other Young Scholar families pursue at this level? What might we expect as a student prepares for life after high school? How do we advocate effectively for our student at this level?
