Course Selection Resources
This will be a helpful event for students and parents to explore all the awesome elective and extracurricular options at Churchill High School. We are hosting the course fair at Churchill, starting in the library at 5:45 pm. Whether your student is an incoming 8th grader or rising senior, hear directly from Program Directors about On Ramps, Dual Credit and Alamo Academies. These programs allow students multiple pathways to earn college credit that could save thousands of dollars in post-secondary schooling. Also, explore courses that are available next year through the multiple displays and staff available throughout the evening.
