Course selection for next year’s classes happens every year beginning in mid-February and ending in mid-March.  During this time, students will receive a copy of their transcript and will have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with their counselor to make sure they are choosing the best classes for next year.  If you have questions about the course selection process, please contact your student’s counselor directly.

The Sophomore Workshop Handout is a great tool that students and parents can use to navigate research . Please access the Sophomore Workshop Handout below.
