To help your Sims along, here's our page on the best mods for realistic gameplay, and a full list of cheats to really amp up your game. We've also ranked all of the Expansion Packs including High School Years, so you can judge which packs to purchase.
Sims 4 High School Years Cheats
On top of skill, money, friendship, and career cheats we recommend the newly added ones specific to the HSY expansion pack. We've divided them up into sections so they're easy to find.
High School Cheats
Here are some handy cheats to improve, or destroy, your young Sim's school career:

|Drop out of school||traits.equip_trait trait_hsexit_dropout|
|Get expelled from school||traits.equip_trait trait_hsexit_expelled|
|Graduate Copperdale High with honors||traits.equip_trait trait_hsexit_graduate_honors|
|Graduate Copperdale High early||traits.equip_trait trait_hsexit_graduate_early|
One of the new part-time jobs or 'side-hustles' in High School Years is the Simfluencer. As the name suggests, this will have Sims making videos and reviews of their life, taking selfies, and influencing those around them.
These cheats will promote and demote them in their career:
The second new part-time career that Sims can get is the Streamer. This requires a computer, and will have them live-streaming games at a certain time each day. You can raise or lower their job levels with the following cheats:
High School Years has added a new skill for Sims to work on: the Entrepreneur skill. This is gained from selling items like art, outfits, or even just going to work.
This skill cheat works on teens and adults and will raise the skill to your desired level from 1-5, depending on which number you put in:
- stats.set_skill_level adultminor_entrepreneur [Number 1-5]
There's also this cheat, to get an extra boost on your career with The Knowledge trait:
- traits.equip_trait trait_entrepreneur_theknowledge
Another new addition with the High School Years expansion pack is the after-school activities that Sims can join. These are not viewable, and work like jobs, so are rabbit holes where Sims will attend alone and return home afterward.
The three activities are Cheer, Football, and Chess Team. You can promote your Sims in each activity using these cheats, and get some benefits:
|Cheer team promotion||careers.promote hsteam_cheerteam|
|Cheer team reward - Cheer Champion – gain Fitness skills faster||traits.equip_trait trait_reward_hsteam_cheerteam|
|Chess team promotion||careers.promote hsteam_chessteam|

|Football team promotion||careers.promote hsteam_footballteam|
|Football team reward - Star Player – gain Fitness skills faster||traits.equip_trait trait_reward_hsteam_footballteam|
In High School Years, there are wants and fears back again, and some of these are linked to social standing and sentiments between Sims. These were added way back near the game's release, but there are a few new ones added in the high school pack.
You can use these cheats to modify relationships between Sims, and create Sentiments between them. You'll need to use this cheat, followed by the codes below:
- modifyrelationship [Sim 1] [Sim 2] 100 sentimenttrack_
For example, let's say you want Sidney Price and Molly Prescott to be good friends. You could use the following:
- modifyrelationship Sidney Price Molly Prescott 100 sentimenttrack_close_lt_twopeasinapod
This will form the 'Two Peas in a Pod' sentiment between them. Here are the other Sentiment cheats you can add to the end of the cheat:
|Hurt about Broken Prom Promise||hurt_st_hsprom_brokenditchpromise|
|Good First Impression||close_st_goodfirstimpression|
|Guilty about Broken Prom Pact||guilty_st_hsprom_brokenpact|
|Bitter About No Prom Invite||bitter_st_hsprom_noprominvite|
|They’ve Got My Back||close_lt_iknowtheyvegotmyback|
|Two Peas in a Pod||close_lt_twopeasinapod|
