School Counseling Services


    Students in grades 9-11 should have received a paper registration form during their period A1 class on Wednesday, March 8th. Teachers of core classes will make course recommendations for next year to individual students during classes from 03/08 until the end of the day on 03/14. 

    Students are then expected to go into Student Portal and select next year's classes starting Wednesday, March 15th and ending on Friday, March 17th. We have set aside time for students to select courses during Advisory on these days.

    Advisory teachers will collect student paper registration forms during Advisory on Friday, March 17th. Forms will then be handed over to counselors. Counselors will meet with students individually between 04/10 - 04/28 to finalize course requests for next school year. Counselors will also use this time with students to answer any questions regarding their course selections and plans for 2023-2024.

    Counselors will do their best to place students into the electives they choose, but constraints in the schedule do not always allow it.
