The purpose of a personal curriculum (PC) is to modify specific credit requirements and/or content expectations based on the individual learning needs of a student. It is designed to serve students who want to accelerate or go beyond the Michigan Merit Curriculum (MMC) requirements and assist students who need individualized learning requirements to meet the MMC requirements.
A personal curriculum (PC) is an option any student or family can explore as a way to modify certain Michigan Merit Curriculum (MMC) graduation requirements to earn a diploma. The purpose of secondary education is to prepare students for life after high school. Any modification to a student's graduation requirements needs to be consisent with this purpose. A high school diploma is documentation that the stuent has met the expectations and possesses the knowledge and sklls necessary for post-secondary success.
Students who are not pursing a diploma or students who are unable to meet modified MMC requirements do not need a PC.
