How does it work?
Each year our counselors present to current NHS students around January or February in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) to show them how to go online through their Student Connect account and select their class choices for the next school year. Students may login anytime after that presentation for about two weeks to submit their selection. A few weeks later, they go to visit their counselors with one of their classes (usually 9th grade goes with their Biology class and 10th/11th go with their History class) to meet one-on-one and ensure that their choices are on track with their graduation plan.
Students may also sign up for Summer School during this meeting with their counselors. The counselors will print out a form with the courses the students have been signed up for and hand to the students to take home and get their parents' signatures. Students must return this form to their counselors before Spring Break to ensure a seat in Summer School. Visit the district Summer School page to learn more.

What if a student is absent?
Students who are absent will receive any handouts by their teacher who took their classes to the PAC for the initial presentation, then they will need to make an appointment with their counselor for the individual meeting.
