In high school you should take all of the core subjects, including math, science, english, physics, chemistry and biology, as this will maximize the options you will have when you are ready to strat university or college. This way, if you decide to pursue a career option other than chiropractic you will have the option. A solid science background in high school will allow you to begin a journey towards any profession once in university or college, including chiropractic, medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, dentistry, law, engineering, etc. If you decide that art or music is more your style, a science background in highschool will not preclude you from taking art or music, etc. in university or college, thus sciences in highschool are always a good option.

Once in university or college, the courses you choose to take will (and should) reflect the career you are aiming for. If chiropractic is that choice, a bachelor of science is the best option. Take courses in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, anatomy and physiology and you will be well prepared for chiropractic college. Students with other undergraduate degrees (eg: Bachelor of arts) are also eligible for chiropractic college, but will find it more challenging without significant background in any of the sciences.

Before a student can attend a chiropractic college he/she must complete at least 3 years of an undergraduate university degree (eg: bachelor of science). Most students at chiropractic colleges have completed their undergraduate degree.

Once in university, if any health care field is your final goal, a degree in science is your best option as it will best prepare you for the rigorous courses that are part of any doctoral program. A bachelor of science with plenty of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, biology, etc. will put you in a good position to be successful once in a professional school doctorate program like chiropractic. Students with other undergraduate degrees (eg: Bachelor of arts) are also eligible for chiropractic college, but will find it more challenging without significant background in any of the sciences.

Good grades through high school so that you can get into a reputable college. Good grades in college, preferrably pre-med major with lots of chemistry, biology and other science classes. After college, medical school, then specialize in whatever you want.
