From the Academic Affairs Office
Dear Parents and Students,

We hope you are having a blessed and relaxing summer. We are in the final stages with the rosters for our students. PowerSchool is an incredible program and has been a tremendous resource. We are looking forward to making even better use of it in the upcoming school year. 

As we all know, rosters can come some with scheduling conflicts. We are hoping that we have resolved the majority of those conflicts at this point. We want everyone to have the best possible schedule! 

Please review the following information as it may answer some of your questions:

Freshmen Students: 
All incoming freshmen have been placed into either  Academic College Preparatory , or  Honors level courses. The difference between each level is pacing, as all our students are expected to achieve at their highest possible level. In general,  Academic students were not placed into a foreign language but were given an extra study period where they can receive additional support with math and ELA.   College Prep is our standard class level. We have a list of  College Prep students who might benefit from additional support in math. Please send us an email if you think your child will benefit from in school or after school math tutoring. Students who have demonstrated strong motivation or ability through a combination of elementary school recommendations, standardized testing, parent input, and 8th grade academic achievement were placed in  Honors level classes.  

Sophomore Students :  
Some students took Health/PE during their freshman year and therefore had an extra class space available. Most of the students elected for an eighth class. If your child did not, they might have a study period. As a reminder, students will need 26 credits to graduate. That means they can only have two study halls during their four years of high school. It is recommended that sophomore year might be too early to use one of those study halls. There are countless electives offered as well as an opportunity for double-math. Lastly, please verify that your child is in the correct level of language. For those just starting a language, they should be in the first, not the second level of the language regardless of whether it is  College Prep or  Honors .

Junior and Senior Students:  
If there are changes that need to be made to your schedule, please make an appointment to review your roster. There are several electives being offered.  

If you need to make an adjustment to your roster, students can stop by the academic affairs office from August 13 th -15 th from either 9:00am-11:00am or 1:00pm-2:30pm. Students may also email Mr. Youngblood at  ayoungblood@cohs.com . Emails will be addressed in the order received. 

All Students:
Moving into the 2019-2020 academic year, we are implementing a new policy. Since all students will have a personal MacBook Air, cell phones must be stored in backpacks and only used during lunch in the cafeteria. 

We are very excited to get started with our 2019-2020 school year. It is a great privilege and joy to watch students grow closer to our Lord Jesus Christ, as they grow in wisdom and maturity. We can’t wait to see how they will surprise us this year in their success both in and out of the classroom.  

In the peace and joy of the Lord, 

Mrs. Diane Casey
Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs
