                                            The Registration Process
December
    Ø Teachers enter recommendations for English, math science, social studies, and world language courses. Recommendations
      are reflected in the on-line class registration system.

        Students receive their registration cards in their social studies classes.

        Students will fill out the Registration Card and using that information, log on to the online scheduling system and enter their
        courses. Students can log on to their Student Portal and click on Class Registration to enter the scheduling portal.

January
        Students will see their counselor via their social studies class to review entered selections and to ask questions.

April
    Ø A Course Selection Form is mailed to all students, listing the courses that the student has signed up for. Students and parents
      can make necessary changes on the form and return to their counselor by May 3, 2019. Counselors will then make necessary
      changes that are requested by parents and students from the originally selected courses.

May-July
    Ø Counselors review student schedules using report cards and transcripts. If there are conflicts and/or students need additional
      courses for graduation, students are notified. For questions or concerns about your student’s schedule during the summer,
      please contact the Counseling Office.

                                             Schedule Change Policy
The courses we offer, and the number of sections of each course we offer, are based on the initial registration of students.
Student choices determine staffing and educational materials purchases that influence the operation of Blair for next year.
Therefore, students and parents must consider their course selections, including honors level decisions, carefully before
registering. All students will receive a list of their course selections in the spring. If a change is necessary, students should
make the correction and return it to the Counseling Office by the designated date. Change requests after May 3 are not
guaranteed and will be done for the following reasons:

        1.   Student has a class missing is from his/her schedule
        2.   Student is enrolled in a class he/she has already passed
        3.   Student is enrolled in a class where he/she has not met the pre-requisite
        4.   Student needs a course for graduation that is not in the schedule
        5.   Student needs to change a class due to health or special needs reason

mission because it encourages students to consider a global perspective. This academy provides opportunities for students to develop their interpersonal
relationship skills through experiential education and collaboration. Students will take classes related to a variety of service professions, including
those dealing with child welfare, education, health, and civil and community service.

                                        Academy of International Studies and Law (ISL)
The Academy of International Studies and Law has two strands. The International Studies strand offers courses and experiences designed to help
students grow as “global citizens” well versed in political systems, languages, cultures and economies of nations around the world. Students will
interact with government and private agencies, foreign embassies, and businesses as they gather the skills and prepare to make contributions which
positively impact our world in the areas of conflict resolution, economic issues and the environment. The Justice, Law and Society strand is designed
for those students who wish to study and work in the many fields where knowledge of legal systems is required. Courses address the Constitution
and Bill of Rights issues, the study of forensics, and criminal and civil law. Students will examine contemporary legal issues at they work with local
private and public legal professionals as well as Blair debate and mock trial teams. There are many areas where the fields of international studies and
the law overlap, and classes such as International Human Rights and other scheduled events provide exposure to issues of law in the spheres of
international diplomacy, business and human rights.

                                    Academy of Media, Music and the Arts (MMA)
Students in the Academy of Media, Music and the Arts develop the ability to read, analyze, evaluate, and produce communications in written text,
moving images, still images, and sound. Students will learn to read critically, interpret analytically, communicate effectively, and produce messages
for both meaning and persuasion. Any field involving art, music, film, radio, video, television, theater, literature, journalism, or photography requires
an understanding of effective communication. Because some careers favor a broad background and others demand specialization, the Media, Music
and the Arts Academy courses will cover diverse areas. A student may create a program of courses spanning several areas, all relevant to a particular
career path, or he/she may choose to explore one specific path in depth.

                     Academy of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)
Students in the Academy of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math will experience the connections among the three disciplines as they prepare
for a career in this area. The emphasis will be on hands-on problem solving, analytical thinking, data analysis and research skills. Career goals include,
but are not limited to, data base administrator, network specialist, software engineer, computer technician, surveyor, civil engineer, robotics specialist,
genetic technologist, forensic scientist, physician, veterinarian, lab technician, mathematician, statistician, and researcher. Careers in this area span a
broad spectrum from applied to theoretical.
                                            Communications Arts Program (CAP)
The Communication Arts Program is an application-only, four-year, honors-level program with an interdisciplinary approach designed for students
who wish to develop their intellectual, creative, and communications skills in the fields of media and the humanities. Once admitted to the program,
students must successfully complete twelve CAP courses, maintain a minimum 2.75 GPA, and complete the CAP portfolio to graduate with the CAP
certificate. Students in CAP take an 8-period day schedule in grade 9, with the option of an 8-period day schedule in grades 10-12.

                       Science, Mathematics and Computer Science Magnet Program
The Magnet Program is an application-only, four-year accelerated interdisciplinary program in science, mathematics and computer science for highly
able students. After building a solid foundation in Grades 9 and 10, students are able to specialize in the areas of their choice. Students in the Magnet
Program have an 8-period day schedule.

                             English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program
The English for Speakers of other Languages (ESOL) program provides high-quality English language instruction that assists students in acquiring
basic interpersonal communication skills as well as essential academic language proficiency in order to function successfully in mainstream classrooms.
Students develop competency in English in all four skill areas (listening, speaking, reading, and writing)
