• 2024-2025 Course Selection

    How are courses selected?
    Teachers will be evaluating student performance and data to make recommendations for course levels for next year in January 2024. Teacher recommendations will be populated automatically into StudentVUE. Please take teacher's recommendations seriously, and encourage your student to have a conversation with his/her teacher if the student does not agree with a teacher’s recommendation.

    The core classes will be locked in StudentVUE and can only be changed by the school counselor AFTER the individual academic advising session has been conducted. Counselors will meet with ALL students individually to review each student’s course selections and discuss them in depth with their Academic Career Plan and post-secondary options.

    Dual Enrollment Course Information:

    Dual Enrollment (DE) course offerings in LCPS high schools are determined by student interest, existing course offerings, and availability of teachers possessing the endorsements required to teach the course. Not all DE courses will be available at all LCPS high schools. Students should speak with their school counselor to determine which courses are available at their high school.

    If a student enrolls in a DE course, they may be required to meet certain admission criteria set forth by the partnering college or university. Students will work directly with their high school to determine what those requirements may be and how to register for that course. DE courses through Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) are available for students in 11th and 12th grades, and students must pass the Virginia Placement Test (VPT) administered by NOVA or by a substitute assessment, such as the PSAT or SAT. In addition, there may be certain prerequisites required for specific courses.  If you have questions that aren't covered in the information provided here, please contact your school counselor.

    Accommodation for Dual Enrollment Courses - Northern Virginia Community College:

    For students who need to seek accommodations related to their current plans (i.e. 504, IEP) for Dual Enrollment courses offered through Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC), NVCC Accommodations and Accessibility Services Office serves as the approver of accommodations.

    Students and parents are directed to follow the NVCC approval process located here: 

    Upon completion of an Accommodations Application, students are notified through the student’s VCCS (Virginia Community College System) Google mail account regarding their application. 

    Once accommodations have been approved through the NVCC Office of Accommodations and Accessibility, LCPS Dual Enrollment instructors will then honor approved accommodations.

    The NVCC and LCPS Contract states that “the School (LCPS) shall work cooperatively with the College (NVCC) to implement accommodations or services in a manner which does not fundamentally alter the nature of the dual enrollment course in which the student is enrolled.”

    For further NVCC policy or questions regarding college level coursework and the IDEA Improvement Act of 2004, please consult the NVCC at accommodations@nvcc.edu
