An endorsement is a related series of courses that is defined by interest area or skill set. They provide you with in-depth knowledge of a subject area. You must select an endorsement in the ninth grade; therefore, middle school is the time to consider exploring and dreaming about the ways your life might take flight through a STEM career.  After middle school, you will follow the appropriate course of study in high school to advance your endorsement–building momentum and depth along your road to graduation.
