Welcome to NEUQUA VALLEY!
We are excited to begin the course recommendation, selection and enrollment process for the Class of 2026. While this can be an overwhelming process, conversations with current 8th-grade teachers and the information below will walk you through all of the necessary details. We are here to support you!
The annual 8th Grade Open House will be on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2022
At Open House, students and families will get to:
PRIVATE SCHOOL FAMILIES

This form will be available to families on Thursday, February 3.
There are 4 steps in the process of starting classes and becoming a Freshman in August, 2022.
Your current 8th grade teachers, who have you in class and know you best, will make recommendations about courses for next year.
Once recommendations are made and reviewed by the students, parents and/or guardians, students are placed in those courses.
The enrollment process includes creating the master schedule based on course recommendations and course requests. This process takes about 3-5 months to complete.
This is an annual process, through ParentVUE, that officially registers a student for the next academic year. Annual registration is required for ALL students.
Recommendations are an important part of this process. Each year, our 8th-grade colleagues provide excellent recommendations that give students the best opportunity to be successful in a challenging environment. Neuqua Valley does not use a tracking system. The courses or levels students are placed in Freshman year are not a "track" they must stay in for following years.
When choosing courses, it's important to look at 4 priorities over the high school experience:
Students qualify for graduation and a diploma by accumulating credits over their 4 years: 1.0 credits for a full-year class and .5 credits for a semester. Students work with their School Counselor to ensure they have the proper credits.
Not all students are college-bound but taking college-prep (CP) coursework provides every student the opportunity for ongoing education after high school. That might be a year after graduation, or 10 years after graduation.
All students have interests and talents that help steer them towards a future career. This includes college-bound students who choose an area of study. Our role is to help students discover those interests and talents by supporting their course selections.
As students progress through high school, they will have opportunities to earn credentials such as AP College Credit, Dual Credit and other certifications and licenses in their high school courses.
