Course Selection

Course Selection: High School Students

Course selection (the process by which students select courses for next school year) will begin in January 2021. Students, in collaboration with their parents, will select courses and enter their requests into the four-year plan (Career Plan) in Skyward. This plan must be signed annually by both student and parent. Course requests are pulled from the Career Plan. The deadline to complete this process is Monday, March 8, 2021.

    • January 12, 2021 -- Information session for freshmen during Biology class periods

    • January 19, 2021 -- Information session for sophomores during Chemistry and IPC class periods

    • January 15, 2021 -- Information session for juniors during English class periods

Additionally, counselors meet briefly one-on-one with freshmen and sophomore students to answer questions and assist with four-year-planning and course selection.
