- Guidance Classes
Each class meets with the CC staff to receive personal guidance on the following age-appropriate topics:
Freshmen: How to succeed in High School
Sophomores: Self-Assessment relating to Career Exploration
Juniors: College Admissions
Seniors: a semester-long Transition Course
- Four Year Plan
It is a CC goal to have each student establish and annually revise a four-year plan with respect to high school course selection, college search, and career choice.
- Standardized Testing
The CC administers, or helps students make arrangements for, the taking of the following standardized tests:
MAP (Measures of Academic Progress): taken in freshman year.
PSAT: register in the CC as juniors.
SAT I and II: register at collegeboard.co
m, usually taken by juniors and seniors.
ACT: register at ACT.com, usually taken by juniors and seniors.
AP: register in the CC, usually as juniors and seniors.
- Post-Secondary Preparation
The CC helps students to search for and apply to post-secondary locations. After graduating from Morrison, most students choose to apply to a university or a college, but some choose to work. Students are given the opportunity to meet with college representatives who visit our campus. Special evenings are planned to inform parents of the college admissions process.
- Peer Tutoring
Some students who are proficient in certain areas are recommended to tutor those students who are having difficulty. The CC arranges for and monitors these peer tutors, who tutor free of charge and can earn academic credit once they accumulate a certain number of hours.
- Student Records
The CC is responsible for generating and maintaining accurate student records. These include progress reports (distributed anytime during a quarter), quarter reports (distributed after each quarter), semester final reports (distributed after each semester), and transcripts (a cumulative summary of high school courses completed to date). Cumulative folders are kept for each student that record reports and personal information.
- Daily Schedule
The student has eight 45-minute periods on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday and four 75-minute periods on Wednesday and Thursday. School begins at 8:00 a.m. and concludes at 3:15 p.m., with a 40-minute lunch. Students attend two 18-week semesters.
- Course Selection Process
Students select and register for next year’s courses in March. Although a counselor will interview each student in April/May to make sure they are taking the proper courses for graduation and college admission, it is still the student’s responsibility to monitor their own academic four-year plan as they move through high school. Graduation requirements and a suggested schedule are listed on the school web site. Once a semester begins, students will have two weeks to add a new course and four weeks to drop a course. Students should regularly check to see that the admission requirements of the college they intend to apply to are being taken in high school. Parents need to sign their child’s schedule indicating that they agree. Click to view Course Descriptions, Graduation Requirements, Suggested Schedule, and Course Listings.
Students, after having their schedules officially approved, will go to the school library to check out their textbooks for that semester.
- First Day of School
On the first day of school, students will have meetings in the morning and classes in the afternoon. Students will have an opening assembly and will be given a schedule for the day. Students will take any placement tests or auditions, have their course schedules checked and approved, and then check out their textbooks. New students will attend a breakfast hosted by the CC. Athletic teams may begin practices.
