Personal Curriculum

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 consistent with this purpose.  A high school diploma is documentation that the student has met the expectations and possesses the knowledge and skills 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.
