Course Selection Calendar

New Students and Students Rising to Grade 9

The dates below are for those new students who enroll in early March. Those enrolling later will accomplish the same steps but at later dates. 

Timeline Action
Mid-March Students and parents receive communication from the registrar with information about the course request process. The student works with their parents or guardians to complete the course request form online. This form serves as a starting point for discussion with the registrar regarding course selections.

May Department heads work with the registrar and the faculty to review the requests in light of the student’s file and the placement exercises.
Late May Students and parents receive an approved course list from the registrar.
