Academic Placement

Students are encouraged to plan their entire four-year program, at least tentatively, by using these materials along with the Course Description Booklet.
Course Registration Instruction Sheets for Juniors, Sophomores, Freshmen, and Incoming Freshmen for Next Year.

Registration for current students for the following year is usually done in early March. At that time you will receive a course booklet, a registration instruction sheet and a registration sheet. Listed on this page are practice registration instruction sheets for each level. They may be slightly different from the actual sheet. Use these sheets as practice sheets, but on registration day, hand in the color-coded registration sheets. Freshmen are scheduled by the School Administration for 8 periods including lunch. There are two major programs, Honors and College Prep. During the Spring Orientation, parental input is requested regarding placement and language choice for freshmen. There is no formal process for freshmen other than this.

Registration for College Credit Courses is done separately in September.
