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.
