St. Louis students also have access to special education courses. 
 
  • The study skills course is designed to assist students with a disability who have a current Individualized Service Plan on file. In this class, a certified special education teacher teaches executive functioning skills to students to help them with organizing, planning, prioritizing and starting tasks; and staying focused on them to completion, as well as other skills. This class is not considered a Resource class and the teacher assigned does not teach specific subject content. Student placement is based on recommendations made by administration after a review of a student’s current needs.
  • The transitions program is specially designed to teach educational, vocational and life skills to students who are pursuing a Certificate of Completion. Students are introduced to, review and practice skills in language arts, math, religion, science and social studies. Additionally, they are introduced to vocations and develop skills necessary for the transition into the work world following high school. Life skills and social skills include lessons to prepare students to live life as independently as possible and to their highest potential. 
 
Course Requests
Current students
Course selection and registration for current St. Louis students takes place on campus at the beginning of each spring semester. The St. Louis counseling staff visits with students.  Students make initial course selections, and parents are asked to sign off. 
 
After requests have been entered into the system, families will receive a course verification form, which is the final opportunity to make changes prior to the start of the next school year. 
 
New students
The St. Louis counseling staff will email new students to begin the course selection process. To make course requests, students must be fully registered and have paid their registration fee.
