FRESHMEN, SOPHOMORES & JUNIORS: 2019-20 Course Selection Kick-Off!
School counselors will meet with freshmen, sophomores and juniors this week in assemblies to review the course selection process.
If students have not accessed their student portal account to date, they will receive an email with their user ID and instructions on how to access it. If students logged in previously but do not remember username or password, they should email their counselor.
Please note: Students must use their student portal account in order to sign up for classes. It is not available through a parent’s account.
If you want to take a course different than what was recommended, you must pick up a waiver form from the counseling office and submit it to your counselor before the change can be made. Students in grades 9 and 10 will meet with their counselor individually in advisory. Students in grade 11 will receive an appointment to review credits for graduation, finalize course selection and discuss post- secondary plans. An appointment time was emailed and mailed through regular mail. Parents are invited to attend.
To plan for their meetings, students should review the Program of Studies available on our school’s website, under Guidance Department on the left hand side, scroll to the bottom where you’ll see Program of Studies. They should take a look at course prerequisites and if a course requires a teacher recommendation. Students should also choose backups for their first choice of electives.

SENIORS: College Application Tips!
- It's not too late to apply to college - see Mrs. Shaffer in the Career Center if you need help.
- When filling out scholarship applications - read & follow all instructions carefully - incomplete or incorrect scholarship applications are usually not considered.

- Keep your eye out for local scholarships in Naviance - items are being added almost daily.
