Getting students ready for their classes next year

Even though it’s still winter, we are already looking ahead to the next school year and which courses students are planning to take.

Over the last few weeks, counselors have held meetings with students to review the credit requirements for graduation, new course offerings for the 2021-2022 school year, and how to select courses through their OnCampus account. On March 1, 2 and 3, we will do the same thing for the incoming freshmen during Freshmen Scheduling Nights. The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. March 1 is open to students with the last names of A-HE. March 2 is for students with the last names of Hi-P, and March 3 is for students with the last names of Q-Z. Please attend with your student. If you are unable to attend on your given night, please attend on another night.

The biggest concern we tend to face is “what if my student needs to make a change?” Don’t worry! We meet with each student to evaluate their transcript, credits, and courses selected in order to set him or her up for success next year. These selections do not have to be set in stone. Rest assured that we are working with your students to make sure their final course selections meet their individual needs.

Junior parents, also keep an eye out for our College Bound booklet, which was sent home with your student during their individual meeting. It contains information on registering for the SAT and ACT, college visits, and NCAA qualifications. After you’ve sat down with your student and read through it together, if you have any questions, feel free to contact your child’s counselor.
