2020-2021 COURSE SELECTION & ONLINE SCHEDULING FOR INCOMING FRESHMEN

Online Scheduling & Course Selection for current 8th graders is scheduled to begin on February 21, 2020 and will run through February 25, 2020.

We suggest that you begin to familiarize yourself with our course selection process by first watching the video Program of Studies Orientation for 8th Grade Parents.

Please click on the photo link to watch the video.



Our online Program of Studies includes detailed course descriptions and videos for every department at Hunterdon Central, as well as general academic information about the high school. You can find it on our website, here:

We would particularly like to direct your attention to information about the Magnet Programs here at Hunterdon Central. These offer students an opportunity to pursue specialized programs that empower them to focus on a particular passion or career area. Each program consists of a cohesive series of three of four courses and includes opportunities for dual enrollment, articulated college credit, an industry-valued credential, or both. You can learn more about these powerful learning opportunities - which are available to incoming freshmen - on our Magnet Program Webpage.

After watching reading the course descriptions and watching the videos, if you have any questions about courses or opportunities in any of our departments, we encourage you to contact our department supervisors. You can find their contact information here: Contact Information for Supervisors

Detailed information on our online scheduling process, including timelines, detailed instructions, videos, and a link to the registration site, is posted on our Online Scheduling Webpage.

Please note that a letter with student login credentials for Aspen, our student information system, will be mailed to each student's household in early February. You'll need that information to complete our online scheduling process, as well as for future access to your child's school information.

We want to reassure you that we are here to help you and your child choose the best possible path to academic success and fulfillment. We also look forward to meeting you here at the high school, and we will be sending calendar dates with information on events and activities when we can welcome you and your child to our campus.

If you have any questions during the scheduling process, please email: scheduling@hcrhs.org

SAVE THE DATES!

Freshman Orientation Activities:

Information about Freshman Orientation for the Class of 2024 will be poasted as soon as it's avialable.

Freshman Physicals:

New Jersey State law requires that each student must be examined at their medical home (family doctor) upon entry into a school district. Therefore, Hunterdon Central requires a physical examination for all Grade 9 students, as well as new students in any grade level. In addition, one physical per year is required for students participating in athletics. Please note that a sports physical will fulfill the requirement for a freshman physical or a new student physical.

The Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation Form must be used for all Grade 9, new student and athletic physicals. Forms can be downloaded and printed from this webpage; please click on the link Health Forms. Forms can also be picked up in Health Offices, or can be mailed to student homes, upon request.

Grade 9 and new student physicals must be turned into Health Offices by September 30, 2021. PLEASE NOTE: any students who have not submitted a Grade 9/new student physical to Health Offices by the due date will not be allowed to return to school until the physical has been completed and submitted.

Information on athletic form due dates and procedures can be found on the Athletic Webpage.

If you have any questions about student physicals, please call the 9/10 Health Office: 908-284-7304.
