While students can obtain all the necessary credits for graduation during the normal course of their high school careers, many students want the opportunity to take more electives such as four years of performing and visual arts, Project Lead the Way classes, four years of a foreign language, etc. With all of the necessary graduation requirements, participating in these extra electives can be difficult. However, there are several options that you and your child can explore as you plan for your child’s next school year.

Students and parents must read the Connected Classroom Handbook and Acceptable Use Policy. If students have a problem or question about their Chromebook, they can visit the Help Desk in the Library from 7:30 - 3:30 on school days or email support@netdemics.com.

    DIGITAL DRIVER'S LICENSE

    DDL Website

    Courtesy the University of Kentucky: 
    The idea of being a good digital citizen becomes more important as schools use various technology as a part of the learning process. Where does this get taught? Who teaches it? How do we keep track of all of this? How do we know what areas need addressing and/or follow up? The DDL project allows learners (whether they be students or teachers) to get exposure to concepts through cases and learn to become responsible digital citizens. Learners can take the practice and evaluative exercises to both facilitate and certify their knowledge.
    Access the Digital Driver's License website here.

    Planning
    As students plan their programs of study, the following considerations should be kept in mind:
    • Advanced study beyond state requirements is not only highly recommended, but is a prerequisite to certain college programs such as engineering, pre-med, nursing, business, pre-law, etc.
    • Biology, chemistry, physics is the science course sequence recommended by the State Colleges of Ohio.
    • Foreign language study for at least two years in the same language is required for all students. Some Ohio colleges are recommending three years of a foreign language study for unconditional acceptance.
    • On the recommendation of the principal, qualified seniors may apply to take courses at local colleges for college credit within the limitation of their high school schedule.
    Course Selection
    A student who selects a course without meeting the prerequisites will be scheduled in an alternate course that fits her/his schedule. Students and parents/guardians should spend time together planning, choosing, and discussing the course selections. The student’s guidance counselor is also available to assist in this process. During the registration process, current students and their parents have an opportunity to schedule special college/career planning meetings with the guidance counselor. Information will be included in the registration packet. Courses are offered dependent upon the availability of teaching personnel and course enrollment. Student course requests will be processed only after their registration is complete and all other financial obligations are considered current by the Business Office.
  • Course Levels

    Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School is committed to the highest academic standards of excellence. The academic program is designed to enhance the knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary for students to become life-long learners and contributing members of society. At CJ, each student is encouraged to continually strive for academic excellence at a level commensurate with his or her ability. Respecting the individual needs of each student, CJ offers courses at various academic levels.

    Students are placed in courses based on standardized test scores, teacher recommendations, and past performance. It is possible for students to be enrolled in courses at different levels. For example, a student may have demonstrated superior abilities in English and be enrolled in an honors English course while at the same time be enrolled in a college preparatory math course.

    ADVANCED PLACEMENT AND HONORS

CJ offers AP courses to students in grades 10, 11 & 12 in English, social studies, calculus, biology, chemistry, computer programming, foreign languages, and art. Students enrolled in AP classes take the AP exam and have the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school. Honors courses offer opportunities for students to pursue more in-depth studies in specific content areas.

    COLLEGE PREPARATORY
    College Preparatory courses are designed for students who have demonstrated the ability and aptitude to pursue post high school studies at the university level.

    GENERAL COURSES

    General courses are designed for students entering college or the work force.

    CUVILLY (SPECIAL EDUCATION)

    Cuvilly is a full inclusion, educational program designed for students with special learning needs.  The program is named after the French hometown of St. Julie Billiart, the foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.

Grades earned in these courses will count the same as grades earned during the normal school year.

    Summer PE
    Students interested in taking a summer Physical Education class should consider TRECA’s summer class.  For more information and to register and pay for the class, please see TRECA’s summer school website.

    Summer Art will take place at K12 Gallery & TEJAS at 341 South Jefferson Street (4 blocks from CJ).

    To earn a half credit of fine arts, a student must complete two full camps at K12 Gallery & TEJAS.  Students wishing to earn a full credit must complete four full camps.  More information about dates, times, and descriptions of the many different camps offered this summer may be found on the K12 Gallery & TEJAS Summer Art Camp website.
