High School Counselor Checklist

​The Youth Options program allows public high school juniors and seniors who meet certain requirements to take courses at CVTC. Approved courses count toward high school graduation and college credit. The school board must pay for any course (including tuition, books and fees) that is taken for high school credit and that is not comparable to a course offered in the school district. Your students are eligible if the student has completed 10th grade with good academic standing, met any course prerequisites, has written approval from a parent or guardian, and has no history of disciplinary problems.

Registration Confirmation
Registration opens with the youth options priority registration event on a first come, first served basis.  Students are strongly encouraged to attend the registration event to receive a full overview of the youth options program at CVTC, CVTC’s college expectations, assistance with registration, and to pick up student IDs, textbooks, and parking passes.

Registration for any CVTC class is not guaranteed until the registration process is complete. 

Nursing Assistant
High demand with a limited number of Nursing Assistant (CNA) seats means that CVTC sets aside a few sections for Youth Options students specifically.  These sections are available to seniors, then juniors on a first, come first served basis at the Priority Registration Event only.  Attendance at the event does not guarantee registration.  *Youth Options students are not limited to these special sections.
