• Rising 10th - 12th Grade Registration Timeline

    It’s time for students to think about courses for the 2020-2021 school year. As students consider which courses they wish to take, they need keep in mind that Norcross High School does yearlong registration. This means students register for the entire 2020-2021 school year this spring. Therefore, students need to make sure they CAREFULLY consider their choices. We hire teachers in the spring based upon the courses students select. Students will have the best chance of being enrolled in the classes they prefer if they request them in January. We are unable to make schedule changes after the drop/add period in early March. “Changing your mind” about taking a course is not a valid reason for a schedule change so please choose wisely and plan ahead.

    A projected timeline for creating student schedules is below. In addition, a variety of other information is available for students and their families. 

    January 13-17th

    • Advisement Lessons (rising 10th-12th grade students) about the course selection process and timeline, elective course descriptions, and elective offerings.
    • Teachers speak with current students about course placements for 2020-2021

    January 21st-24th

    • Elective registration for rising 10th-12th grade students in the Commons
      (Thursday 1/23 and Friday 1/24)
      Elective Teachers from CTE, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Health/PE, and World Languages will be in the Commons to register students for elective courses for 2020-2021.

    January 27th-31st

    • Rising 10th-12th grade students will receive their courses for the 2020-2021 school year in their first period class and can make changes to their elective course selections at this time. Students will list four alternate elective in the case a top elective choice is unavailable or a scheduling conflict exists.

    Early March

    • Drop/Add for Rising 10th-12th grade students
      Students will receive their High School Course Letters which will outline all of their courses for the 2020-2021 school year. Students will have one last chance to review their course selections for 2020-2021 and update their courses during this time.  If a change is needed, students should complete the NHS Drop/Add Schedule Request Form, have a parent sign the form and turn the form in to the Counseling Office no later than the deadline on the form. Forms will be available in the NHS Counseling Office. Any course requests made after the deadline will not be accepted.

    Mid to Late April

    • Rising 10th-12th grade students will receive a final list of courses that students can expect to be on their schedule in the fall. No course changes can be made at this time.
