Sophomores and juniors browsed the Academic Fair in Taper Gym Wednesday during activities period instead of a First and Third Assembly to get a glimpse of classes available for them to take next school year.

Prefect Council, upper school dean Sharon Cuseo and Director of Student Affairs Jordan Church hosted this year’s Academic Fair.

During the fair, teachers and students who were currently taking the class set up booths with posters and food for their respective classes and electives. At each table, they described their courses and answered specific questions for prospective students.

“I think the Academic Fair is definitely helpful because you get a chance to talk to the teachers of these courses, and you learn about the workload, the assignments and what the course entails,” Rohan Prashant ’17 said. “You also get to know the teachers a bit better too.”

Prefect Council handed out Cinnabon cinnamon buns and coffee to students and faculty.

“We decided to get Cinnabons because we thought it would be a good addition to the event and would attract more people to come to the event,” prefect Princie Kim ’18 said.

Online course signups for the next school year open tonight at 7:30 p.m. The selection process allows students to sign up for courses that their current teachers have approved them to take. Students can enroll in a maximum of seven classes and a minimum of five core classes.
