GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. - One local high school just isn't what it used to be, it's changing course. The core subjects are the same but now students have majors. If you're thinking college, you've got the right idea.
As of next fall the seniors, juniors and sophomores at Graves County High will take classes according to their major. The school's Assistant Principal says this curriculum restructuring plan is long over due "we have to make changes, high school have been unchanged for 100 years" said Carla Whitis.
Here's how it will work. Soon Graves County High will become a school within a school, broken into four major parts called career academies. "Each academy is going to gear all their academics toward that career area" said Whitis.
