CVHS 11-12 Program


The 11-12 Program at Chippewa Valley High School is designed to assist juniors and seniors who have fallen behind in credits the opportunity to remediate credits and still graduate on time. The curriculum for the 11-12 Program is a combination of teacher directed courses and independent study courses. While the teacher directed courses are more traditional in nature, it is the independent study courses that allow the students to "catch-up" because the courses are based on an amount of work rather than a length of time.

The 11-12 Program staff realize that students fall behind in credits for a variety of reasons - many of which are out of the control of the student themselves. In addition to the academic component of the program, students are also given assistance with issues that have kept them from being successful in school.

Additional components of the 11-12 Program are a focus on transition to activities beyond high school (post-secondary school, full-time employment, or the military) and multiple opportunities for Service Learning The staff feels strongly that graduation and earning a diploma is not the ultimate goal - rather a stepping stone to bigger and better things.


Students are typically referred to the 11-12 Program by the counselors at Chi-Hi. It is important to understand that students are never forced to attend the 11-12 Program - rather they are given the opportunity to attend. It should also be understood that students cannot simply choose to enroll in the 11-12 Program - their enrollment has to be approved based on a joint decision between the counselors and principals at Chi-Hi and the principal at Chippewa Valley High School. In order for the 11-12 Program to function successfully, the students in the program have to be motivated to take advantage  of the program. The referral process is important to make sure students are a good fit for the program. Parents/guardians interested in having their student placed in the 11-12 Program should start by talking to the student's counselor.
