IDLA Program Pathways: GEM Pathway (CEI)

Program Pathway:

Multiple courses must be completed across seven academic categories. Not every student will take the same set of courses. For example, a student who knows they want to study engineering in college may take different math and science courses than a student interested in studying English.

Through this partnership, CEI will offer advising to students to help them select which courses apply to their individual goals.

If you are interested in pursing this roadmap, work with your counselor or site coordinator to build the roadmap into your course plan.
