Returning Student Course Selection


2019-20 Course Selection

2019-20 Course Selection for grades 9-11 students will begin with grade-level presentations on Wednesday, February 20 and Thursday, February 21. Students will receive a Course Selection Contract to review and complete with parents and return to the Counseling Office no later than  Monday, March 18.

Course Selection Instructions:

1.  Before you fill out the Course Selection Contract, read it carefully!  You are selecting classes for the entire 2019-20 school year. Before selecting courses, review the Course Profiles and pay close attention to prerequisites, homework requirements, and the course description.

2.  On the back of the Course Selection Contract, review the Course List that corresponds with the grade you will enter in 2019-20. You can review your graduation and college eligibility status on your Aeries portal.
 
    3.  Write your class selections in the spaces provided on your contract, including TWO ALTERNATES for every elective you choose!  Select electives that you are genuinely interested in taking.  Use pencil when filling out the Contract so that you can make changes, if necessary. Make sure that you and your parent or guardian sign your Course Selection Contract and that all signatures are in ink. 

    4.  Between February 20 - March 18, you and your parent/guardian must log in to the Aeries Parent Portal to select your courses online. Please refer to the Course Selection Presentation for instructions on using the online portal. Your online selections should match your hard-copy course contract. If there is a discrepancy, counselors will defer to the signed course contract.

    5.  After you submit your course selections in Aeries online, you must turn in your completed contract to the Counseling Secretary during Counseling walk-in hours: before or after school or at lunch, before the March 18 @ 3:00pm deadline. The secretary will check that you have filled out the contract completely and correctly, and that you have selected your courses online.

    Counselors are available to meet with students who have questions about course selection during walk-in hours, which are before and after school, as well as during lunch.  If a student has extensive questions, they can schedule a meeting with a counselor online on the counseling homepage.
