Course Selection

Course Selection Process

The course selection process is a significant component of the school-home partnership and while course selection is the primary responsibility of the student and their parents/guardians, there will be numerous opportunities to consult with, make use of the broad experience and professional background of our faculty, and school counseling staff. Students have the opportunity to explore the diverse course oerings through our Program of Studies, which will enable them to be best prepared for college or employment upon completion of their senior year.
