Electives Selection New Families

This year, electives selection for our rising Grade 6 - 8 students will involve a new process where students will choose their electives through the Veracross Student Portal. Below are FAQs and the steps to follow to select Electives.

FAQs

Below please find the steps to follow for the new Electives Selection process:

STEP 1: REVIEW ELECTIVES COURSE CATALOG
Please review the Electives Course Catalog. This catalog contains descriptions of available elective courses for the upcoming academic year.


STEP 2: REVIEW ELECTIVES SELECTION GUIDE AND COMPLETE WORKSHEET
Download and review the Electives Selection Guide and corresponding Worksheets. These documents will help your child list their preferred electives in preparation for entering their choices into Veracross. Please ensure your child identifies the category of their desired elective, referred to as “subject” in Veracross and the electives course catalog (e.g. subject: Community Service or General Studies - elective name: “Life Skills”).


STEP 3: ATTEND ELECTIVES INFORMATION SESSION ON JULY 2
We are excited to invite you and your child to our upcoming Electives Information session scheduled for July 2 at 6 p.m. We strongly encourage you to attend the session, but it will also be recorded and sent to new families by July 3:

  • (For new families) Tuesday, July 2 at 6 p.m. - Attend via Zoom

STEP 4: STUDENTS ENTER ELECTIVES SELECTIONS IN THE VERACROSS STUDENT PORTAL BETWEEN TUESDAY, JULY 2 -  WEDNESDAY, JULY 10
When your child is ready to submit their Electives Selections in their Veracross Student Portal, please instruct them to log in to the Veracross Student Portal between July 2 - 10 to complete their Electives Selections. All Electives Selections must be submitted through the Veracross Student Portal by the end of the day on Wednesday, July 10.
