Course Selection Process

The course selection process for the following school year starts in January. Counselors meet with students and parents during the months of January and early February to discuss course options and assist them with sign-ups for the 24-25 school year.

Helpful Resources For Course Selection:

Log in:

Go to the Infinite Campus Portal If you do not know your Infinite Campus portal login and password, please email

On the left-hand side, click on ‘More’, then ‘24-25 Course Registration. You will see required classes already selected for you.

How many classes to choose? 

You will have a total of 7 year-long classes (2 semesters or S1 + S2 = one year) required and/ or requested courses and 3 alternate courses. You should count unscheduled periods as classes.

Be sure to pay close attention to the prerequisite requirement/recommendations for each course you select.  See the Course Catalog under the counseling section of the PHS website. 

Searching for a course:  

Use the course search box. You can search by the course name or by the course number.  You can scroll through a list of possible courses that appear.

Requesting Courses:

To request this course as part of the schedule for next year, click on the course name to add it to your list. The system will save as you go along, and indicate your percentage of course request completion. 
There may be classes that require prerequisites and/or  assessments; see the current course catalog.

Alternative Classes must be chosen:  

You must request 3 alternate classes. Search for a course, click on it, and add as ‘Alternate’.  Enter your Alternate classes in priority order.  If a requested class cannot be assigned, we will try to fill your schedule with the 1st alternate class requested.  

Removing a Course:

If there is a course you DID NOT want to select, click on the course and select "Delete Request".

Make sure you request 7 classes including free periods (called Unscheduled).  The top of your screen needs to indicate ‘100% Completion’ with the selection of 7 year-long requests.
