Freshman Course Scheduling
Course Selection for Freshmen takes place during 8th grade. Students and families will select the classes they are interested in. Teachers will also share which classes they feel are appropriate for each student.
All incoming freshmen will take a Math and ELA exam. Generally, these are part of the existing 8th grade local assessments. Parochial students will be offered opportunities to come in and take both assessments.
A course selection form will be shared with each student. Families will have the opportunity to review it with their child, 8th grade teachers and the school counseling department.
