Advancement and Enrichment
Northern Highlands Regional High School
Career & Academic Pathways - Online and/or Seated Courses for Advancement and Enrichment
Applications are due 4/1 for fall semester, 12/1 for spring semester, and 4/1 for summer semester.
Advancement and/or enrichment courses are available to students who wish to study a content area or level beyond the scope of the Northern Highlands curriculum. To enroll in an advancement and/or enrichment course, a student must submit a course request application to the Career & Academic Pathways Supervisor for approval (see below for the link). Each student enrolled will work with the Career & Academic Pathways Supervisor and/or a faculty mentor to oversee course progress, and courses must include ongoing communications between the instructor and student, as well as regular interaction for purposes of teaching, evaluating, and providing assistance. If the course results in an assessed letter grade, a numerical grade will be awarded and included in the GPA if credits count toward graduation requirements. Students may not exceed eight courses in a school year for GPA calculation purposes. If applicable, all AP courses designated as College Board approved will be weighted accordingly. Any other online and/or seated college class will be weighted as Honors level.
It is the responsibility of the student to confirm course enrollment and provide an official transcript to both the Career & Academic Supervisor and the Director of School Counseling to ensure the student transcript reflects the coursework and the final grade. Any costs incurred as a result of an online and/or seated course will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian. The Board of Education will not assume any responsibility for any fees associated with this program.
Prerequisite: Prior administrative approval by the Career & Academic Pathways Supervisor, Department Supervisor, Director of School Counseling, and Principal must be obtained before enrolling in any online and/or seated course.
