  • Course Selection Process for the 2019-2020 School Year



    Course selection for our current students and our incoming Freshman will take place from January 14, 2019 through February 4, 2019. Please note that course selection is not registration. Information on residency verification and registration for your child for the 2019-2020 school year will begin with a request this spring to update your student’s demographic information. 
    Current students are meeting with counselors over the next few weeks to select courses for the 2019-2020 school year. Appointment date/time are emailed to the student through their school email, as well as posted in the cafeteria and in the Counseling Office. Student’s course recommendations are now viewable in Home Access Center (HAC) as course requests.
    To view the courses recommendations in HAC:
    ·        Select the Classes icon
    ·        Click on the Schedule tab
    ·        Scroll past the current schedule to the 2019-2020 Course Requests.
    All courses recommendations by teachers are listed so you may see multiple courses within a content area. Please note that recommended courses are not the actual enrolled courses for next year. Once students have met with their counselor, this list of courses will be updated to reflect the final course requests for the 2019-2020 school year. The deadline to make any changes to the course selections is February 4, 2019. Please talk with your student’s counselor if you have any questions or concerns.

    College Planning Workshop
    for HCHS Junior Students and Parents
    Sunday, February 10, 2019
    12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
    The annual College Planning Workshop will be held on Sunday, February 10, 2019, 12:00 pm-3:30 pm. The Hinsdale Central PTO and the Counseling Department co-host this event for junior students and their parents.   
    All juniors are welcome to attend the workshop whether or not they choose to have an interview.
    Juniors may choose to participate in a mock college interview, conducted by an experienced interviewer. Following the interview, the student and an interview observer will review the recorded interview, discuss, and practice strategies for improvement. 
    We have a limited number of interview slots. Slots will be filled in the order registrations are received.
    In addition to the interview option, juniors will participate in 5 breakout sessions focused on the college search and application process. The breakout sessions include:
    • College Applications, from the Perspective of a College Admissions Rep
    • A Student's Journey - Finding the Right College Fit
    • Application Essays - Take a Deep Breath
    • HCHS Senior Student Panel – How I Selected My College List
    • Making the Most of Your Junior Planning Conference
    The workshop also includes a 90-minute Parent Session. The session is delivered by a panel of HCHS parents and includes plenty of time for Q&A about the college application process.
