Making Your Course Selections

Making Your Course Selections

Now that the school year has ended, it is time to plan for your academic future at Hebron Academy! 

Course Selection at Hebron

Once your final transcripts are received, the Dean of Academics can begin the process of proposing your course selection at Hebron.  Course selection depends on many factors. Previous courses completed, prerequisites, past performance, interests of the student, and college goals will be taken into consideration when determining courses for the fall.  

Below are sample course schedules for each grade- by no means applicable to all.  Students are encouraged to speak with teachers, parents, and college counselors for guidance. You may even reach out to the Academic Dean’s office or College Counseling office at Hebron for additional advice. 

Math, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), and language classes are proficiency-placement based.  For example, if Algebra 1 was completed in middle school, freshmen typically begin with geometry.  All new international students are tested for proficiency upon arrival in the fall to determine math, ESOL or language course levels.
