Academic Advising/Course Registration

Course Registration for Current FCPS Rising 7th and 8th Grade Students 

Counselors will be working with students in January through early February to register for courses for the upcoming school year. Course descriptions and information on requirements can be found in the catalog. Questions regarding course registration can be answered by your child's counselor. Parents of rising 7th grade students are encouraged to speak with their child's 6th grade teacher and school counselor to assist in choosing appropriate courses for the next school year. 

More information about FCPS Middle School programs and departments can be found on the FCPS Middle school site.

*The course selection sheets are provided below for your planning courtesy. Please note that it is preferred for students to use the colored & labeled course selection sheets sent home by the counselor. This helps the staff organize the files for each grade level.

To Register for Next Year Parents Must Have an Active SIS ParentVue Account.  

Please note that all students will be entering courses through their SIS StudentVue account.  Parents will be able to see the courses students have selected using their ParentVue account.  Enrolling parents who have not yet set up a ParentVue account will be receiving a letter in the mail that includes their activation code and instructions for how to set up your account.  Additional information on your ParentVue account can be found HERE.
