Scheduling and Graduation Requirements

Each year, students at the High School must select the courses they will be taking for the next year. The Administration and Counseling Center will provide an overview of the scheduling process to parents and students. The PowerSchool parent/student portal will be opened to allow students to make their course requests. These course requests will then be used to build the final schedule. Additionally, the CLASS MEETING SLIDE SHOW is available for students to reference.

Students should refer to the COURSE DESCRIPTION BOOKLET 2020-2021 for a full description of courses, prerequisites and credit information. 

The presentations from the 2020-2021 Scheduling Night are available for both programs that were offered.  The program for students entering Grades 10, 11, and 12 focuses on gradation requirements and planning for life after high school.  The program for students entering Grade 9 focuses on the scheduling process, graduation requirements, and state mandates for graduation including Keystone Exams (Act 158) and College, Career and Community Readiness (Chapter 339).

For quick reference, the following table outlines the required minimum credits need to graduate from the High School.
