• Welcome Freshmen!!

    Navigating High School

    At the end of September, freshmen met with their school counselors to discuss important aspects of navigating high school, such as learning about graduation requirements, their GPA, Class Rank, importance of involvement, etc. Then freshmen and their parents are invited to make individual appointments with their counselor to sketch out a 4 Year Plan of high school classes based on their post-secondary career goals. 
     
     

    Course Selection for next year

    In mid-November, the school counselors will be meeting with freshmen during their English classes to finalize their Course Selection for 10th grade. Before Course Selection, students will hear from their teachers about course offerings during C^3 Day (Curriculum, College & Careers), and they are encouraged to talk with parents, siblings and teachers about possible course options. Please have them choose their classes through their PowerSchool portal. They will finalize their classes in meetings with their counselor.
     
    Please contact your child's counselor with any questions.
     
    Follow the steps on the Course Requests for Next Year tab to prepare for the meeting with the counselor.
