2022-2023 Course Catalog
Message to Students and Parents/Guardians
This catalog is designed to give students and parents detailed information about the selection of classes and curricular aspects of the Novi High School program. It is our belief that it is in the students’ best interest to explore many different types of courses when planning their future. Students should consider their future college and career choices when using this catalog and plan wisely to avoid the need for schedule changes and misplacement.
Novi HIgh School offers a broad selection of classes and activities dedicated to fostering well-rounded students who are prepared for their future. Selecting appropriate electives with attention to their future plans, their interests, aptitudes and talents will help students to focus their education and will give them the opportunity to explore specific career areas.
The schedule is based upon student course selections from the previous school year. This limits the opportunity for course changes once the schedule has been set. If changes are necessary to core classes, students must submit a schedule change form to their counselor at August registration. Given that the master schedule is based upon student selections, desired course changes are often difficult to honor and need to be academically justified if they are able to be changed. If space allows, academic justification may include: enrolling in an advanced course, remediation, or medical reasons. Requests for changes based upon lunch preference, teacher, class period or friends cannot be granted.
The high school experience is full of opportunities that prepare each student for adulthood. Exploring, understanding, and choosing wisely from the many opportunities that are available will provide each student with purpose and focus beyond the high school years.
We welcome all students and parents/guardians to Wildcat Country and hope that the high school experience will be meaningful, challenging, and memorable!
