Course Guide

This course offering guide has been prepared to assist students in selecting classes to take during high school. The development of an appropriate schedule is one of the most important steps a student can take to ensure worthwhile academic school years.  The counselor will meet with students by grade level to review courses, electives and the registration process.  Additionally, families and students are able to schedule an appointment with the counselor on a need by basis to help support the students academic endeavors.

Graduation Requirements

Graduation requirements are designed to give each student a well-balanced high school education.  Included in the requirements for graduation is the opportunity to choose several elective courses.  These, if carefully chosen, will help the student explore and develop his or her career interests and abilities.  When planning a course of study, please consider the college or vocational school entrance requirements and/or future educational plans. Keep a careful record of the courses needed to meet high school graduation and post-high school educational requirements, career goals, and if applicable, NCAA eligibility requirements. To keep records accurate, verify credits with your counselor on a regular basis. Transfer students must complete all graduation requirements to earn an EPHS diploma.

Individual Career and Academic Plan

ICAP Toolkit

The Individual Career and Academic Plan (or ICAP) is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic, and post-secondary opportunities. With the support of adults, students develop the awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and skills to create their own meaningful and powerful pathways to be career and college ready.  ICAP activities will be integrated into core curriculum, the counseling program, and special events.

Course Selection

The registration choices made by students determine the schedule for the upcoming year. Also determined by registration is the assignment of teachers, the decision to offer certain elective classes, and the number of sections that will be offered. Please note that all courses listed may not be offered during a given year due to demand.

PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP FOR A CLASS UNLESS YOU INTEND TO TAKE IT.  It is important that students select their classes very carefully, as schedule changes will require the approval of the counselor and all teachers involved.  

Schedule changes will be made no later than the first week of each semester.

Allowable Schedule Changes:

  • The student has a class that was not requested on their registration form.
  • A student needs a specific class to graduate or as a prerequisite.
  • The student is in the wrong level class or in a class without the proper prerequisite.
  • The student’s schedule is incomplete.
