Fashion & Interior Design Course of Study

This pathway map represents a suggested sequence of courses leading to capstone, work-based learning, and post-secondary experiences which will assist students in being as successful as possible after leaving high school.  Although each student will personalize their experiences, the earlier a student begins this sequence, the more opportunities students will have to fully explore the educational and community options available. These sequences should be coupled with appropriate core courses, as well as life-skills and courses in a student’s area of interest.
