Course Selection Information

Course selection for students in 9th - 11th grades opens on Monday, March 20th at 9:00AM, and will remain open through Friday, March 31st at 8:00PM. Below, you will find the materials distributed to all students for the grade level they are registering for (i.e. 9th grade is registering for 10th grade, etc.), as well as supplemental materials and counselor assignments for all students. 


Course availability is primarily done according to a student's First Semester Grades. Please review any requirements in the Course Catalog linked below, and if a student wishes to take a course that they did not meet the requirements for, but they are close to meeting them, they may fill out a Course Exception Form, which can be found HERE. All Course Exception Forms will be reviewed at the end of the school year. 


AP offerings for students who sat for AP Placement tests and are accepted will appear on a student’s course selection during the process. If a student sat for a placement test and wishes to be re-considered for an AP Course, they are welcome to complete a Course Exception Form, which will be reviewed at the end of the school year.


All questions on Course Selection should be directed to your child's Guidance Counselor or to the email address [email protected]. To streamline this process, the Course Selection email and the Guidance Counselors will be the only emails that will respond to course selection questions.
