Schedule Options

  • Credit Earning Opportunities -

    A variety of ways to take classes/earn high school credit
    Huron offers coursework to all students in a variety of different formats based on the individual learning needs of our students. Please speak with your Counselor to determine which methods will work best in the students four year plan for graduation and how choices in class schedule impact post-secondary goals.

    Students should put together a minimum of a 6 credit hour school day that is in alignment with their EDP (Career Cruising, Educational Development Plan) to be considered full time made up with the various types of classes available; of which at least 50% must be taken through the student's "home building". See Scheduling - Course Selection & Change Process for additional information and work with your Counselor to develop and implement the plan.

      • If agreed method for credit earning, Counselor adds student to "wait list" w specific classes needed.

Students who would like to take 2 or more OL classes, must have an updated EDP that included those classes.

    Split Schedule w/ AAPS Schools

    • A Split Schedule means to take classes at multiple Ann Arbor Public School Buildings. Students must take at least one half (3-4 classes) of their day at their "Home Building" and may take the balance of their schedule through other credit earning opportunities.
    • The most common Split Schedule is for students to take classes at Community or Pioneer High School or an Online class through Community High School.
    • We usually don't recommend splitting for freshmen, unless it's jazz or dance heading to CHS.
    • Students can split enroll space permitting once scheduling is completed for the students from that home school, about 2 weeks before the start of the semester. Split scheduling is becoming more difficult, however, with budget cuts possibly impacting class openings and transportation. Please do not expect that you will be able to split your schedule. We will do our best within the openings available and often are not able to complete a split schedule until until the first week of classes has started.
    • Let your Huron High School Counselor know if you are interested as early as possible! We will work with you to register for classes and then rework your Huron Schedule.
