• Greetings Allen High School Students,

    It is time to begin course selection for the 2021-2022 school year. Course selection is the process where students choose which classes they would like to take next school year. In the spring, students will utilize Arena Scheduling to determine when they will take the classes they chose during course selection. 

    The window for submitting courses is open in Skyward between Nov. 30 and Dec. 11.  

    In order to best be prepared for course selection, we have curated a list of resources for students to review before selecting their choices. These resources include videos, click sheets and slideshows. Your current counselor is also a great resource if you have additional questions. 

    • First, review the “Course Selection Process Video.” This video is an overview of what course selection is and contains basic information about graduation requirements, the Academic Planning Guide, frequently asked questions, and more.

    • Familiarize yourself with the Academic Planning Guide to read course descriptions, endorsement pathways, and more.
