• COURSE SELECTION FOR CURRENT KHS STUDENTS


    Kirkwood High School students work on and update their personal Academic Plan each fall. The course planning and selection process takes place in November and is to be completed by then end of Winter Break (January 5th).  Students will enter courses for next school year (2021-2022) and for the rest of their years at KHS through the Infinite Campus Portal when we open it up. 

    The counselors encourage students to reflect on their interests and strengths when selecting classes as well as have conversations with parents and teachers to help navigate their courseload. While choosing courses, please consider the following:

    • Your areas of interest and career aspirations
      • Through Naviance, students can access the Career Interest Profile and the Career Cluster Finder career exploration tools.
      • Browse the Career Cluster pages at the back of the Course Book (pgs 132-139)
      • Also check out the Career Exploration board in the Counseling hallway
    • Post-secondary goals
    • Rigorous but balanced course load

    Students entering the 9th grade for the 2021-2022 school year will do course selection in January 2021. More information will be posted closer to that time.
