Before students select courses, counselors discuss course offerings with students in small groups. After a student has submitted a course selection, the counselor may be contacted to respond to concerns.

Although all courses have open enrollment during the pre-registration process, some students may be asked to attend an informational meeting if they wish to take courses considered to be more advanced than their current placement. The passing grade for all courses is 70.
