Before selecting your courses for the first semester, please refer to the two-page Course Selection Letter from the Dean of Academics that accompanies these descriptions. The Course Selection Letter will detail the course sign-up procedure, including the recommended course load, entrance exams and distribution requirements. Finally, please note that courses with minimal sign-ups may be canceled. Thank you.
To Register for Your Courses: As a part of this packet, you will find a set of course descriptions for fall and spring courses. A link for course registration will be live July 18 (see the link at the beginning of the Summer Guide). As you read through these course descriptions, please take careful notes of what interests you. As soon as the link is live, you will be able to register for your elective courses, as well as SAT Prep and Focused Academic Coaching.
(A) Students will register for second-semester elective courses in early November.
