Want to attend a college class at a Madison College campus? Youth options allows eligible students to take college courses on campus while still attending high school. This option allows students a great way to learn beyond what is offered in your local high school. Youth options classes are tuition-free, they are paid for by your local school district!
Students must petition their school district by filling out a PI-8700a form (PDF, 198 KB). The course must be from the approved list of Youth Options courses, must be different than a course available at your high school, and must be approved by your high school.
Youth options are open to any Wisconsin public school students who have maintained a high grade point average in high school and display necessary responsibility and maturity levels needed to enter a college level course. They may not have any significant disciplinary problems on their student record.
A list of all youth options classes are available here. There are two options available: regular Madison College courses or Liberal Arts transfer courses.
Be sure to check out your options with your high school counselor. Classes must be approved by your school board before you are able to register.
If you are interested specifically in the Nursing Assistant class, you have some additional work to do!
