It is individualized to the needs of secondary students and is provided outside the traditional secondary school. Funds allocated through the SCA/Course Choice program will target the following types of courses for high school credit: career and technical preparation, academic work required for TOPS, advanced coursework, dual enrollment, and intensive remediation to help struggling students stay on pace for graduation.
