Course Selection & Scheduling

Course Selection Information

Watch the Video! Check out the 2017 Course Planning Night Presentation in this half-hour video.

Course selection typically occurs in February and March of the school year.  Students will complete a course selection card by carefully reviewing their Program of Studies (POS). Students should understand their graduation requirements and required course prerequisites.

Students should complete their requests by taking into consideration the following factors:  discussions with their families, their academic/social needs and interests, graduation requirements, teacher recommendations and their post secondary plans.  The student’s parent/guardian should review and agree to all course requests.  Please see your counselors for more information about this process.
