2015-2016 CFHS Class Registration for Current Students  

The process for students to choose classes for next year starts NOW.

  • CFHS offers a number of different classes, and many awesome opportunities are available including college credit, coop, and cadet teaching. Please check out the Educational Planning Handbook web page with course offerings and descriptions. Also included is information about graduation requirements, college, and university requirements, drop policy and much more!
  • Holmes and Peet 9th grade students will be visiting the high school during the week of January 26. We look forward to having them visit and learn more about all of the opportunities at the high school.
  • High school core department teachers have already started working with the sophomores and juniors on choices for the next school year. Core departments include English, Social Studies, Math, and Science. Students should also be thinking about what electives they would like to include in their schedules.
  • It is an extremely important process, and parents need to be involved in these discussions. We want students to be highly intentional about completing high school and college requirements and also taking classes to explore career interest areas.

Time Line

  • The juniors and sophomores will be meeting with the school counselors during the week of February 2nd to complete their scheduling choices. We will be meeting with JUNIORS during English classes and SOPHOMORES during Social Studies classes.
  • Core classes will already be entered and locked. Students will need to return a copy of their choices with parent signature by FEBRUARY 12th. If you have questions, there will still be time to make some changes.  Individual meetings will then be held starting the week of February 16th with the counselors to review and discuss and finalize their choices. 
  • Please take the time to visit with your students about what classes they sign up to take for next year.  Many critical decisions are made at this time, and changes are not always possible. 
  • We will also post the powerpoint with the information the students received during their class presentations.

ACT Preparation Seminars  

On April 18, 2015, many area high school students will take the ACT examination, preparing for the college and university application process the upcoming year.

The ACT examination is the primary measuring tool used by Midwestern universities and colleges in determining college entrance, scholarship awards, and course placement or exemption.

To assist sudents in preparing for the ACT exam, a select group of Cedar Falls High School teachers will facilitate a series of four ACT Preparation Seminars begining on Monday, March 30 for local students who plan to take the ACT examination on April 18, 2015.  Each teacher is highly qualified to teach subject matter in the following ACT exam areas: English, reading, math, and science.  Registration deadline for the seminars is Friday, March 13.  Signing up for this seminar does not register you for the actual ACT testing.  The seminars we are conducting and the actual ACT exam are two separate things.  You must register for the actual ACT TEST by going to www.actsudent.org 

During the seminar, students study and prepare for the four parts of the ACT exam: English, Reading, Math, and Science. The seminar takes place over four nights, lasting roughly two hours and fifteen minutes each night and corresponding with each of the core areas. Therefore, students who attend the seminar all four nights will benefit the most from the program because they will receive instruction in all four of the core areas.

The registration fee is $35.00 and covers instruction and materials for all four nights.
