Registration for the 2023-2024 School Year


Lily Shelton, Contributor

As we reach the halfway mark for the second semester, registration creeps up on students, so make sure you’re prepared to create your best schedule for the next school year.

Students received registration information in advisory on February 15, and many more related events will follow. Curriculum Night will be held on February 23 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Students will have the chance to learn about many of the clubs, organizations, classes, and sports offered here at Bob Jones. From February 21 through March 10, parents can schedule appointments with school counselors for any questions or concerns.

You MUST enter your requests into PowerSchool as well as turn in your registration packet to ensure you get your first choices. Also, note that schedule changes after March 10 will cost $20 if the reason for the change is seen as unfit. The only accepted reasons for change are as follows:

  • You have an “EMPTY” spot in your schedule.
  • You are missing a core class (English, Math, Science, and History).
  • You are missing a course or courses needed to meet graduation requirements.
  • You’ve already taken that course and passed.
  • Athletic PE or Band was left off your schedule, etc.

When creating your schedule, make sure to remember that you need at least 26 credits to graduate.

 4 English Credits (English 9, 10, 11, 12)

4 Math Credits (Geometry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Math Elective)

4 Science Credits (Biology, Physical Science or Chemistry, 2 Science Electives)

4.5 Additional Electives of Choice Credits

Don’t know what electives you want to choose? Bob Jones offers plenty of sample courses that don’t require full dedication until you’re ready. From engineering to finance to fashion, students can sample many different electives before settling on one specific path. Also, remember that Co-Op and Dual Enrollment options are available to students as well. Co-Op allows students to work more hours if they’re employed, and Dual Enrollment allows you to take college courses while in high school.
