Course Selection Policy

 

Every effort is made to provide curriculum offerings that will meet both the academic and personal needs of Cathedral High School students. Students are reminded that when they are considering a course of study, serious thought should be given to past academic performance, ability, attendance, willingness to work and future goals. In order to facilitate the educational process and avoid confusion and delays in the fall, the following policies are established:

  • If a student needs help in arriving at a decision regarding her program, she must consult with her guidance counselor, teacher, chairperson of the department or the Assistant Principal.
  • In the selection of courses, parents must approve the course selections and are encouraged to provide assistance to their children. Please feel free to call your daughter’s guidance counselor.
  • Course requests will be fulfilled in accordance with the good of the students and the facilities available.
  • Any requested changes in a student’s selected courses must be made in writing prior to June 2018and signed by a parent and be accompanied by a $10 fee. NO CHANGES WILL BE MADE AFTER THAT DATE.
  • The only schedule changes that will be made in September are those necessary to resolve computer error, conflict, or those which, after careful review, the administration feels are in the best interest of the student. SCHEDULES WILL NOT BE CHANGED FOR ANY OTHER REASON.
