Course Selection and Class Registration

The journey toward graduation begins well before high school, and the pathways that lead to a high school diploma are numerous. The school counselors are here to help you navigate the road to graduation, while enabling you to explore and develop your educational interests. The information below will apprise you of class offerings, minimum requirements, the registration process and much more.

Courses and Class Registration

Important Information for Incoming Seventh Graders

School Counselors will present course registration information for the upcoming school year to middle school students on Feb. 8 for Harmon and Feb. 12 for Diley and Toll Gate.) Students will register online again this year. Please review all the information on this page and talk with your child about the courses he/she would like to take.

Below, you will find the Course Guide and the counselors’ presentation that were shared students. You will also find the link to register through Infinite Campus.

To register, use the Infinite Campus link on the website or login with a Chromebook or computer. You must register through a browser (i.e., Google, Safari, Firefox, etc.) You cannot register for courses through the Infinite Campus application.

Registration must be complete by Feb. 18. Students not registered will have courses assigned to them.

Important note: Not all placement information for advanced level classes is compiled at this time, as some qualifying placement assessments have not been given yet. It is important that each student’s information be complete and accurate. Therefore, we are adding temporary placeholders in each 6th grader’s requests. Those placeholders are 7Math, 7Eng, 7SS, and 7Sci.

Students are only registering for electives at this time. When the placement lists are complete for all of the advanced level classes (Advanced Math 7, Algebra, Gifted English, and Advanced Science) and the placement letters have been sent, we will enter all advanced level classes at one time.

In early April, students will be given course verification sheets. If, at that time, there are questions or issues with the courses to which  students are registered, we will address any concerns. Thank you in advance for your patience in allowing us to assure accuracy.

Summer 2018 Credit Recovery / Grade Replacement Program

Pickerington Schools will offer a credit recovery/grade replacement program during the summer of 2018. The program is open to any current high school or past students of the Pickerington Schools. Out-of-district students may be considered if space is available.

Registration is coming soon!

Credit Recovery is a self-guided, computer-based program that will allow a student to earn credits in areas where the student has previously been unsuccessful.

Courses will vary in terms of the hourly requirements needed to complete a course. Each course will be worth ½ to 1 (0.5 – 1.0) Carnegie units. There are ways for a student to accelerate progress by pre-testing out of some units. Students will be able to take as many credits as they want during the session but will not be permitted to work on more than one course at a time.

Registration will be on a first-come basis, although students who should have graduated in May 2018 will be given the first priority of placement. All Pickerington students will be given priority before the placement of any student from outside the school district.
