Completing your subject Selection Form: Step 1: Write your name, ID number, current grade, address, and phone number. Please write legibly, as what you write will reflect on the accuracy of your schedule for next school year.
Step 2 On the front of the subject selection sheet are all of the required subjects for each grade level. You are to obtain the recommendations of your current teachers for each course in the core subject areas of English, Math, Science, and Social Studies (if applicable to your grade level). Teachers will recommend you to honors level courses or Advanced Placement (AP) courses. These also require the completion of an AP Contract; Ask your teacher or go to our website for this. Teachers must sign next to the course level they recommend for you.
Step 2 continued You must select the additional required electives for your grade level. Most do not require a teacher recommendation. Most importantly, you must select the required academy elective that corresponds to your year of study For example, If you are entering the academy for the first time, select the first year course. If you are currently taking the first academy course for your academy strand, then select the second year course and so forth.
Step 3 On the back of the subject selection sheet you will be selecting 6 additional electives. Please refer to the information for graduation requirements to help you select your electives. Keep in mind that although a foreign language is not a requirement for graduation, two years of the same foreign language are required for admissions to universities, scholarships, and academy completion. Number your choices in order of preference (that is, place a number 1 next to the course you want the most, number 2 as the course you would like to take second-best, etc.) Notice that some courses require a teacher recommendation. Please refer to your teachers in Band, Dance, or Acting for assistance with recommendations or see your counselor.
Step 4 This step requires that you sign the subject selection sheet and have your parent/guardian also sign the sheet. You are also required to return the subject selection sheet to the appropriate personnel as indicated at your school. (For incoming 9 th graders presently 8 th graders, you give your sheets to your teachers or guidance counselor at your middle school. For current Ferguson students, you must bring your sheet directly to our Student Services counter and place in the appropriate folder according to your academy.
