Request Courses

Course Requests are now open!
Read the instructions below to get started.

Choice of Studies Process

Course selection for incoming 9th graders opens on May 11, 2018 and requests are by due June 1, 2018. If you submit your course requests by this deadline we guarantee you will be able to take the level of core content you requested. Electives are not guaranteed since we give upperclassmen first choice on these classes.

If we receive your course requests after the June 1 deadline we will do everything we can to accommodate the level of core content you have requested, but we cannot guarantee availability.
