The registration process at SES is similar to what occurs across District 196 for high school students. The primary differences are related to the clustering/naming of the Thematic Studies courses, registration for Intensive Theme courses, and the opportunity to take home high schools courses in conjunction with SES courses. The registration worksheets break down the process and provide explanations for those features which are unique to SES.  

Registration for SES Courses

General information about SES course options, graduation requirements, and course descriptions are available on the pages under Explore SES titled: House Courses, Non-House Courses, and Intensive Theme Courses. Please explore these pages and use them to help complete the appropriate grade level registration worksheet, prior to completing the online registration process.

Registering for NON-SES courses (home high school courses)

There are certain courses that can NOT be taken at a student's home high school when enrolled at SES. These courses include English, social studies, art, physical education and health courses, as all are offered at SES. Additionally, students can NOT take math or science courses at their home high school, unless there is a schedule conflict. 

Courses that CAN be taken at a student's home high school include, Business, FACS, Technology, Dance, Band, Choir, World Language (other than Spanish 3, 4, or 5) and Career Development, as these are NOT offered at SES.

If a student chooses to take an elective course at their home high school, registration for the home high school course ONLY, will need to be done through the home high school during the online registration process. This course will also need to be indicated on the paper registration worksheet (see links above) which are distributed and collected during the registration process by SES. 

Please note

  • The paper registration worksheet must match the registration completed online, the paper document is used to confirm and double check registration for each SES student.
  • Students taking a home high school course will register for that course AND ONLY THAT COURSE through their home high school. All other courses will be registered for through SES. Students should NOT register full time at both SES and their home high school.

Final Steps for the registration process

Once you have filled out the appropriate grade level SES Registration Worksheet (see links above) register online through Campus. Use the Online Course Registration Instructions to help navigate the process. If you are an incoming junior you will need to print out confirmation of the online registration prior to the date that SES will be visiting your home high school to finalize the registration process. 

Please note: After registration is complete, ALL schedule change requests for both SES courses AND home high school courses must be made through SES.
