7th/8th Grade Elective Registration
Please refer to the application elective page for more information on additional elective options not available on the Parent Portal.
Students will make their Elective Choices using both the Parent Portal and a Google Online form. The Google form is required in addition to the Portal.
Each student will be able to choose their first choice plus an alternative elective on the portal. The paper elective form will allow students to make four choices and be used as a back-up for the portal choices. Your 1st choice and alternate choice on the portal should be the same as your 1st and 2nd choices on your paper copy. The portal choices will override the Google Form choices if they are not the same so please choose carefully.
Course descriptions can be found by clicking here. You will also find the most recent School Curriculum Guide using this link. Elective choices to be used for the Portal are as follows:
