Class Registration for 2022-2023
The course selection process for the 2022-2023 school year is now underway. Class are being held the weeks of January 24 and January 31, at which time students will be given the new curriculum guide and a course selection sheet for the next school year. I will be explaining the registration process and reviewing the curriculum guide to highlight information regarding credit and distribution requirements for graduation, new courses being offered, the option to meet the PE requirement through participation in St. Paul sports, as well as other important details. I will also review the special requirements for participation in the Advanced Placement and the UConn Physics Early College Experience program. I always emphasize the importance of choosing courses that provide an appropriate level of challenge for students while at the same time supporting their future college and career plans. Students interested in enrolling in advanced placement, early college experience, and honors courses should be aware that there may be prerequisites for those courses. Please make sure your child familiarizes themselves with those requirements before seeking their teacher’s approval. Enrollment in certain elective courses is restricted to certain grade levels.
Students should arrange to make time to meet with their current teachers to discuss their course selections and to obtain signatures for courses where teacher approval is required. Non-leveled courses such as Religion and many electives do not require approval by a teacher. Students will need to submit their course selection sheet with required teacher signatures, their registration payment and a parental signature to the Guidance Office. For the Class of 2023, forms are due on Friday, February 11. For the Class of 2024, forms are due on Friday, February 18. For the Class of 2025, forms are due on Friday, February 25. Their school counselor will setup a meeting with them to review their choices for courses for next year once they have submitted their course requests form to Guidance. After meeting with their counselor, should your child need to make changes to their schedule, a new form will be given to them detailing the suggested changes to their course selections for you to sign and return to school. Please remember that students who miss their registration deadline run the risk of not being able to enroll in classes that have already reached maximum capacity.
If you need assistance or have any questions about this process, do not hesitate to contact your child’s school counselor or myself. We are happy to guide you and your student through this process.
