This program of study, along with other career planning materials, serves as a guide to assist students in the Puyallup School District in developing a relevant four-year high school plan that will prepare
them for further education and/or employment in the Health and Human Services pathway. The Military program of study as outlined below can be individualized to meet each learner’s education and
career goals. It allows students to earn college credits while completing coursework within high school, and apply those credits toward attainment of a college certificate and/or degree. As with all high
school planning, it is important to share and review your plan with a parent/guardian and school counselor.
