Each student enrolling in a Howard County Public High School is given a copy of the Catalog of Approved High School Courses. Students in all high schools are given an opportunity to indicate course preferences, providing they have met the necessary prerequisites for courses listed in this catalog. Each individual school will make a determination of its final course offerings based upon the number of students who preregister for courses and the availability of qualified and certified staff. This approach to scheduling is designed to meet the unique needs of individual school communities.
