Course Selection Process

Counselors will provide information about the course selection process, class choices, and graduation plans through classroom guidance. Parents will have the opportunity to meet with their student and their student’s counselor to fill out the course request sheet. Students are reminded that some course offerings are tentative and dependent upon sufficient enrollment. Salem and RCA will work together to try and meet all course requests. Sometimes it not possible to get the exact course selected. It is extremely important, therefore, that alternate course choices be listed for elective course on the registration sheet.


Schedule Change Policy

Students and parents meet individually to determine courses for the following year. With the assistance of counselors, students have the opportunity to choose their own classes as well as alternate electives. Once the new school year begins, schedule changes will be made only for the following reasons:

  1. A student is placed in a course in error.
  2. A student fails a required course, making a schedule change necessary for graduation.
  3. Additional credit was earned during the summer, making a schedule adjustment necessary.
  4. A student is placed in a course and has not passed a pre-requisite course.
  5. A level change (moving from honors to regular) may be made only if the student has demonstrated an effort to do well in the class. (Participating in class, asking questions, attending tutorials) and with approval from the principal.
