General Information

Choosing courses for Fall 2014

 Starting with the upcoming registration for the fall semester of 2014, students in grades 9-11 will be submitting their course requests electronically.    Course requests will be able to be submitted through the Student Portal from TBD. After that date, the printed request must be submitted.  All requests must be submitted from the Student Portal account but can be viewed from the Parent Portal accounts.

It is extremely important that your student creates his/her own Student Portal account immediately and completes this process in a timely fashion.  Failure to submit a course request, electronically or in print, may result in your student being placed on a wait list for courses in high demand and/or make it difficult to get their first choice of elective classes.  You can log in to the Parent/Student Portal at  There are also helpful  FAQ’s and videos to assist you in creating your account.

We strongly encourage you will take advantage of this great new feature and help Capo “go green” as we move toward making student registration a paperless process.  If you have any questions regarding creating an account you can receive assistance by emailing
