Advising Process

All students will receive an overview of the Academic Advising process during Advisory on Friday, January 5

In Advisory on Tuesday, January 9, students will access the resource guide to learn about course sequence, requirements, and expectations, and to determine which electives they want to explore further at the electives fair.

Students will be able to attend an Electives Fair during Lancer Time on Thursday, January 11.

Students should plan to enter their initial Course Requests in their StudentVUE prior to meeting with their counselor for their 1-on-1 meeting.  All course requests must be entered in StudentVue (using a computer; it cannot be done on a phone). However, course requests are not finalized until students meet with their counselors. By entering initial Course Requests, it helps counselors prepare for their meetings with students.


Current Lewis HS students will be meeting one-on-one with their school counselors to finalize their course selections on the following dates:

  • Rising 12th (Current 11) - January 22 - February 1 through English 
  • Rising 11th (Current 10) - February 5 - February 14 through Social Studies 
  • Rising 10th (Current 9) - February 15 - February 22 through PE 9
  • Rising 9th (Current 8 ) - at Key & Twain with their counselors 

Students will be notified of their specific time and date for their meetings through their Advisory on Jan 16, 2024
