ELECTIVES

What is an elective?

Electives are courses other than core requirements. As the term suggests, electives offer a degree of freedom and choice.  An elective could be in the same category as a requirement.  For example, if a student had fulfilled the three science requirements, and desired to take another, the fourth science would be considered an elective (as would courses exceeding requirements in Math, Social Studies, etc.).  Elective courses not directly related to core requirements may also be done (e.g., Typing, Home Ec, Auto Mechanics, etc.).  Electives afford the opportunity to pursue special interests or subjects that would help with future college or career plans.
