2021-2022 Course Selection Information

It is already time to plan for the 2021/2022 school year.  The first step in this process is to have students choose elective courses.  Below is the information you need to help your student choose a year-long elective they will enjoy.  Elective descriptions can be found on the Course Request Forms.  If you would like more information on specific electives, please see the buttons below.  Once your student has decided on an elective (and an alternate elective, just in case their first choice is full), they need to actually select the course in synergy.  There is a video and slide presentation to walk you through the process.

If you have additional questions on elective selection, please contact your students counselor.
