Course Selection Process

Welcome to the online course selection process for the academic year, 2020-2021.

From January to March 2020, Guidance Counselors meet with students across grades 9-11, sharing details regarding courses for 2020-2021, resolving questions or concerns and publishing the Course Request Verification (CRV) document to the iParent Portal (3/25), finalizing the process in April (4/8). Any new courses will be presented to students by their academic teachers, alongside many outstanding and familiar options.

The process gets underway with presentations to students during Guidance Seminar or Common Directed Study (CDS), links to PowerPoint presentations will be embedded in the chart below. Entering course requests will take place through iStudent (iPass), a familiar tool currently used to monitor grades and review report cards. Parents/ Guardians and Caregivers will be able to view this information using their iParent (iPass) account. Directions to using the Online Course Selection portal in iStudent have been provided in the documents on this webpage, as well as given to students during the presentations listed below.

As students make their course selections we are introducing a Time Management Activity, to encourage students and their families to thoughtfully consider a balanced program of study that takes account of extracurricular commitments, community service, work and any other activities that may impact their daily lives. Remember the Guidance Mantra, ‘students should be challenged, yet not overwhelmed’.

If you need assistance with iStudent/iParent account access, please contact:

Students have until February 23rd to complete their online course selections 
This process is NOT  "first come, first served".
