Scheduling "How To"

This Program of Studies is developed each year to provide students and families the necessary information for making sound choices in course selection. It provides descriptions of courses, credit values, prerequisites, and relevant recommendations to help students make appropriate course selections.

In the Program of Studies you can find recommended sequences for courses within each subject area, work pages for drafting a Four-Year Plan of Studies, athletic eligibility, scholarships, graduation requirements and other related topics.

It is crucial that each family give careful consideration to the courses a student takes in high school to prepare for post-secondary education and/or the world of work. Please take the time to ask questions of our professional staff to make the best, most informed decisions.
