ELECTIVE CLASSES AT SUMMIT
Summit offers a great variety of different electives that includes over 30 different classes. Students have the opportunity to take two choice elective classes per semester. A required P.E. or Health elective and a suggested study hall elective are also built into student schedules each semester, for a total of four elective classes per semester. Elective classes will alternate each day, following the A-Day/B-Day schedule.
How do I pick my elective classes?
Each year, students fill out an Elective Choice Form with their preferred elective classes for the following year. Students will be able to rank 8 electives of choice, but we highly suggest that they take their time, read all course descriptions, and discuss their elective choices with their parent or guardian. Students will be held accountable for their choices the following year and should only choose electives that they are interested taking.
How do I change my elective classes?
We highly suggest that students try their elective classes for at least three weeks before requesting a schedule change. Typically, we reserve schedule changes for students who need an adjustment in their schedule to access support classes, or students who have been accelerated in a core class. Students are held accountable for the 8 electives ranked on their elective choice form. Please take your time choosing these classes, as we will not be able to change schedules for electives that students chose.
Do electives have homework?
If your read through the elective course descriptions on this page, you will notice that specific classes are marked with outside of school commitment required. Please make sure to take note of this when choosing your elective classes so that you can plan and prioritize your time.
