Attention students - If there are any schedule changes you would like to make for next school year, please see your school counselor before leaving for summer break.  The counselors will not be making any elective changes after June 14th.  Changes will only be made for the following reasons, as stated below (2019-2020 Course of Study page 11).

  1. CRITERIA FOR CHANGING STUDENT SCHEDULES

Schedule changes may be considered for the following reasons:

  1. The correction of a clerical error in the schedule (i.e. a missing course, a conflict between two or more courses, or not having the appropriate prerequisite).
  2. A recommendation from the Child Study Team.
  3. A student is repeating a course with the same teacher he/she previously had.
  4. A student wishing to take additional courses, in place of a Study Hall, which do not entail the dropping of any other courses.

 

XII. CRITERIA FOR DROPPING OR ADDING A COURSE

SCHEDULE CHANGES WILL NOT BE ENTERTAINED FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:

  1. Course content or standards differing from student expectations.
  2. Dropping a course because it is not needed for graduation.
  3. Inability of a student to relate well to a given teacher.
  4. Preference for some other subject. Level changes may be accommodated at the discretion.

 

*If a student is scheduled for 37.5 – 40 credits, they may drop an elective for a study hall.

 

If you have any questions, please see your counselor.

  • CareerLinking Program

    This program is sponsored by St. Luke’s University Health Network.  The purpose of the program is to have students combine observational learning experiences and professional development sessions, with a focus on exposure to health care careers with job readiness skills training.  Students are lucky enough to be involved in patient care assistant training, where they learn how to take vital signs, intake and output measurements, EKGs, glucometry, phlebotomy and specimen collection.  They are also included in on hospital rotations in the ER, Birth Center and NICU, Surgical Unit, Imaging and Lab, just to name a few, as well as surgical observations.

    Juniors:  If this program interests you and you would like to participate for next year, please see your School Counselor for more details and to adjust your scheduling requests, if necessary.
