Course Selection

Important documents needed for scheduling and course selection for the 2024-25 school year

The course selection process for the 2024-25 school year will begin January 8th for current 9th, 10th and 11th grade students. Students will receive  copies of Course Selection sheets and instructions during  English classes.  Students will have one week to receive signatures for course recommendations for the 2024-25 school year from teachers .  School Counselors met with students in grade level assemblies to review the outlined information regarding the Course  Selection period.  Students will have the opportunity to make appointments with their Counselor to address individual questions or concerns. Appointments can be made with the Counseling Secretary, Mrs. Posey, during the first week of Course Selections. Students may also schedule appointments at Counselors will also have individual meetings with each student to review the student's course selections during English class for all grade levels. 

Applications for Dual Enrollment, Full-time College Waiver, Principal’s Waiver, Fire/Rescue and Early Graduation are anticipated to be provided by the 10th and 11th grade counselor at the meeting held during the student's class to discuss their Course Request. 

Below are important resources and information regarding courses and programs available for next year. The student's selections MUST be submitted to the Counseling Department by February 9.

The course selection process for current 8th grade students varies by school.  For information about specific scheduling timelines at each middle school, please contact your child's middle School Counselor.   

How to change Teacher Recommendations:  Have a parent write a note to the School Counselor to notify the Counselor of the desired course and level. This document will suffice for validating what course you desire to take next year. This applies to changes for core academic classes (A level, Honors and AP level), not the elective courses; as the elective recommendations are only recommendations and students are not locked in to those options.

High School Program of Studies: A useful tool to explain classes offered at LPHS and CCPS schools.

Graduation Pathway Options:   A useful one-pager listing graduation pathways at LPHS.
