2020-21 Course Catalog
The 2020-21 Fayetteville-Manlius Course Catalog outlines important information about our academic programs and policies, including the course selection process, graduation requirements, grading system and counseling program. More importantly, this catalog outlines the diverse course offerings available to you.
The course selection process empowers you to create an academic program to best meet your interests. As you consider which courses to choose, ask yourself the following questions:
What are your interests? Course selections should represent your unique interests and provide you with the opportunity to explore new academic areas while building on areas of strength.
What are your post-secondary goals? Your academic program should lay the foundation for a well-rounded education that supports your pursuits after graduation.
What extra-curricular demands do you have? Your schedule should provide an appropriately challenging program that will push you to grow, but also balance the many activities and responsibilities you have outside of the academic day.
Additionally, take the following into consideration:
Teacher recommendations: Your current teachers have purposefully recommended courses for the 2020-2021 school year in which they believe you will find success. If you have questions about those recommendations, please talk with your teachers to gain a better understanding of why they made the recommendation.
This is your path! Remember that your abilities and interests are unique to you. Therefore, the courses you select should reflect that, not the experiences or interests of others. Take time to talk with your family about your choices, as they can provide guidance as you consider what is best for you.
Your counselor is here to help. You will meet with your counselor in a small-group setting to make course selections. If you have questions, reach out to them for input and support during the process.
Fayetteville-Manlius High School is proud of the rich academic program we provide. Course selection is an exciting time to look forward to new opportunities in the 2020-21 school year. Do not hesitate to call our Counseling Center at 315-692-1801 for assistance. We want your program and related course selections to be right for you.
