Challenge The mission of Frederick County's 10 comprehensive public high schools is to challenge and help students in grades 9-12 to grow intellectually, personally and socially. Students are required to earn 25 credits to graduate, and upon graduation they should be able and willing to take the appropriate first steps into a chosen field of work or study, act as responsible citizens and lead productive lives.
Options In addition to a wide range of courses available at their local high schools, students may attend classes at the Career & TechnologyCenter, participate in work-study programs and internships, and enjoy a variety of extracurricular activities. Qualified seniors may also enroll at local educational institutions, such as Frederick Community College.
Guidance Counselors meet with high school students and incoming freshmen at least once a year to evaluate and plan course schedules.
