2024-2025 Course Selection

Course selection and registration for the 2024-2025 school year is approaching. The members of the Student Services Department will be meeting with students to discuss their academic plans and provide advisement as they select their courses for the upcoming academic year. The registration process will be reviewed with students during class meetings on Wednesday, January 24th and Thursday, January 25th. At this time, they will be introduced to next year’s Curriculum Guide, provided copies of their individual credit check form, instructions on making selections in Blackbaud, and the date of their 1:1 appointment with their school counselor.   Click here to read the complete letter.

Save the Date: Second Semester Virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences

Thursday, February 15 from 1:00 to 8:00 pm 

Parents/guardians, please mark your calendars for our second semester Parent Teacher Conferences. They will take place virtually, via the Google Meets platform, on Thursday, February 15 from 1:00 to 8:00 pm. Students will have a noon dismissal from school in order to allow parents to have the opportunity to have brief video conferences with their Blazer’s Block 3 teachers. The conferences will be scheduled through a program called Pick-a-Time. A link to the scheduling program and full instructions will be emailed out to families in the last week of January.

IB Internal Assessments are well underway during the third block. Students will be completing orals, essays, lab reports, investigations, explorations, and case studies in each of their IB classes. These assessments comprise between 20-30% of students' overall IB grades in each course. Unlike the May exams, the internal coursework is completely controlled by the student with the guidance of their teachers. Students choose their own topics and work on them independently over the course of several weeks. The IA's are graded by the teachers and then submitted to IB examiners for final moderation and scoring. We wish our IB seniors and juniors much success with these important components.

Save the Date: On Monday, February 5, a special meeting for Pre-IB sophomores and their parents will be held in the library from 6:30-7:30 pm. We will discuss the course selection process and expectations for the official IB program during the junior and senior years. We look forward to seeing you for this valuable discussion that will help to guide the Class of 2026 in their academic journey.
