Course Selection

The course Selection process starts early in the spring semester of each school year. Students will receive their 2023-2024 schedules in Sapphire on August 1st 2023.

  • The high school counseling team visits EHMMS in February to discuss high school course scheduling with students in 8th grade. The presentation includes the following: Presentation and "Compass" Curriculum Guide.
  • Counselors provide students with a printed copy of their teacher recommendations and a course selection form for the upcoming year. Students receive a parent signature on their paper form after completing their initial requests and alternative requests.
  • Counselors then meet individually with each junior to review their unique requests and discuss their post-secondary plans.
  • Counselors visit 5th periods to collect 9th and 10th grade course selection sheets and discuss post-secondary planning, high school opportunities and graduation requirements in the classroom setting.
  • Schedules are finalized in the summer. 
  • There will be a brief window of time each summer for students to request schedule changes. Changes are very limited and only made for students who need to balance out their core courses.
  • All students should carefully consider their post-secondary plans when selecting courses for the upcoming school year. Use these resources to get a head start on your planning: search by career interest, college major, or college to discover requirements for each.
  • Students may also find helpful information by logging into their Xello accounts.
  • Schedule change requests are approved in only a few situations. Please refer to this form.
