Counseling Corner: Addison Trail Guidance Department set to assist students with course registration for 2023-24 school year

It’s nearly that time of year – time for Addison Trail students to register for the 2023-24 school year.

Students will select courses in January or February online through PowerSchool. See the important information and schedule below.

The Addison Trail Guidance Department encourages parents/guardians to discuss course selections with their child. Course selection is a vital part of a student’s high school career, and parental involvement is essential to assist students in making successful academic choices. To view course descriptions in English and Spanish, go to PLEASE NOTE: The 2023-24 course listing guide will be available soon.

Some important reminders regarding the registration process:

  • Students need to be enrolled in at least six periods, plus a lunch.

  • Schedules are computer generated, and counselors are unable to confirm a specific schedule.

  • Course selections will be considered final on Feb. 28, 2023.

If you would like to meet with your student’s counselor to discuss course registration, please contact him or her directly. Counselors also will be available during the Guidance Department Open House from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Feb. 23, 2023.
