2017-18 Classes

Class Schedules

Check out our class offerings! All students in grades 3-12 will choose their class schedule by selecting one class per period for their APEX day. Before you select your student’s schedule, we recommend that you download the class grid, course catalog and Student Schedule Worksheet and begin planning the class schedule you’d like to for each child.  You will be required to choose a 1st choice class for every period and a DIFFERENT alternate class for every period. Once you submit your schedule you will receive an email confirmation of your choices for your records.

APEX Recommended Course Pathways

Classes shown on the grids include multiple grades. In order to help parents plan a pathway through the APEX course offerings, our teachers have created this recommended course scope and sequence. On this spreadsheet you can see all the courses offered in the APEX catalog in the order our teachers recommend students take them. None of our classes are required, and parents are free to make other choices that best suit their student’s needs and interests.  Pathway courses are those our teachers would recommend your student take in each subject. Additional courses are those your student may wish to take if she/he is interested in exploring further in a subject area or if you wish to keep the sequential courses in that subject area within your homeschool program and not take them at APEX.

NOTE:  Not all of our classes are offered every year or at every site. Students may have to choose a class listed under “additional” or take classes out of order sometimes for this reason. Additionally, students in grades 8-12 are permitted to dual enroll at another APEX site in order to take a class they need that might not be offered at their site.

Course Catalog 

This catalog includes all courses for all APEX sites for all years. Some courses listed here may not be offered at the site you are attending or may not be offered this year. Please refer to the site’s class grid (linked above) for current course offerings first and use this catalog as a reference. Classes fill once the course maximum has been reached. Please browse through our Course Catalog for more information about our classes. The first few pages will tell you all you need to know about selecting classes and course ratings.

Considerations for Class Selection

  1. YOUR REGISTRATION MUST BE COMPLETE BEFORE YOU SUBMIT A SCHEDULE!
  2. Kindergarten, 1st grade, and  2nd grade students do not select classes
  3. Please READ the course description for EACH class
  4. Use the Student Schedule Worksheet to help you plan your classes.
  5. Carefully consider the class RATING
  6. Choose an ALTERNATE for every period
  7. Classes fill on a FIRST COME/FIRST SERVE basis. However, sometimes we have to make choices to lessen the grade range of  class or offer a spot to a student who would not have access to that class the following year instead. You will always be notified if your student is place in an alternate class.
  8. Schedule change requests will not be accepted until August 1st

Class Ratings Explained

The class rating determines how much homework and outside time each class will require. Please consider these ratings carefully as you select your student’s schedule.  Ratings will be followed closely throughout the year.

The ratings are as follows:

1= No outside homework

2= Some outside homework, not to exceed 1 hour per week

3= Approximately 2 hours homework

4= Approximately 3 hours homework and parent involvement (1 hour teacher instruction, 3 hours parent-supervised work).

5= Approximately 4 hours  homework and parent involvement (1 hour teacher instruction, 4-5 hours parent-supervised work).
