Semester transition makes room for new electives

Each semester, some students receive a schedule change for their new electives. The Lake Central Course Selection Guide can be found at

A new semester brings new opportunities, a fresh start, new classes and new teachers. Many classes are a full year, but there are also semester classes offered.

A majority of the half year classes are, however, electives. Some are required to complete high school, and other electives are offered for personal enrichment. Typically, students have anywhere from zero to five ‘slots’ available in their schedules that are able to be filled with electives.

“At semester I had quite a few classes change including going from Cooking to Personal Finance and Ceramics to Study Hall. I needed to complete my art credits and Personal Finance is a required class for juniors, so I made room for that,” Jenna Stockman (11) said.

With the transition from semester to semester, new elective classes are introduced, causing a variance in the students’ schedules. They are then able to explore subjects they enjoy and find out what fields they might want to pursue in the future.
