We are excited to announce the launch of SchooLinks Course Planner for our high school students. This powerful tool will revolutionize the way our students plan their courses and academic journeys and will go live on Monday, March 18th.


With SchooLinks Course Planner, our students will have access to a comprehensive platform that empowers them to take charge of their education. They will be able to explore a wide range of courses, create personalized academic plans, and chart their path towards success. This will not only help them make informed decisions but also foster a sense of ownership and responsibility for their educational choices.


To ensure a seamless transition and support our students through this process, we have prepared collateral materials that will serve as a guide for utilizing the SchooLinks Course Planner effectively. These resources will provide step-by-step instructions and valuable tips on how to make the most of this innovative tool.


Helpful Documentation:


If you or your child have any questions or concerns regarding the course planning process or the Schoolinks Course Planner, please do not hesitate to contact your Counselor. We are here to assist and support you every step of the way. Your feedback is invaluable, and we are happy to address any queries or provide further clarification.


Thank you for your continued trust and partnership in your child's education. Together, we can create a remarkable learning experience that empowers our students to excel and thrive.
