Course Request Memo
It is almost time to request your academic courses for the 2019 – 2020 school year! We are approaching course requests with a three-phased approach, which means that you will request different classes at different times. This process will allow you to see your schedule as it develops and have input at each phase.
Phase 1 Core Course Requests (March)
Phase 2 Connections Selection (Late April)
Phase 3 Final Schedules Released (Early June)
In Phase 1, you confirm the core courses you intend to take for the following year with the Academic and College Counseling Office.
In late February, you will meet in small, grade level groups during GTD led by Dr. McCubbin or another member of the Upper School Leadership team, during which we will advise you on all the details. In March, you will choose and confirm core courses including math, science, English, social studies, world language via a digital survey. Rising seniors will be given first preference during initial course requests, followed by juniors and so on.
Class of 2023 Meeting: Thursday, February 14th during Community in the Glenn Campus Art Gallery
Class of 2022 Meeting: Tuesday, February 12th during GTD in the College Counseling Office
Class of 2021 Meeting: Tuesday, February 19th during GTD in the College Counseling Office
Class of 2020 Meeting: Tuesday, February 26th during GTD in the College Counseling Office
Phase 2 will occur by late April/early May. You will receive your core course schedule. Next, you will request connections courses that fit with your individual schedule via digital survey. Rising seniors are given first preference during initial course requests, followed by juniors and so on. Pay close attention to and prioritize the required connections courses: Health, Wellness, Fine Arts, and iProject where appropriate. If something has changed regarding your core courses, you can let us know at this time, too.
By early June, you will receive an electronic copy of your schedule for the 2019-2020 school year. Students may request a schedule change via electronic form until the week of orientation. There is also a small add/drop window within the first three days of a module. Room and teacher information will be available during orientation in August 2019.
We look forward to working with each student on creating a schedule that aligns with their future goals and plans.
