A copy of the Guide to Academic Programs is currently available online on the Penncrest page under ‘our school’ and Academics.  Hardcopies will be distributed to students on February 5th during school-wide informational assemblies.  In addition, please take some time to review the following link for some more information about course selection and Penncrest High School that includes access to the Guide to Academic Programs: Course Selection Link on Website: 

Please take time to review the Guide.  It contains information about the new graduation requirements and outlines many of the pathways our students take to success after high school. If you have a question, you will find the answer in the Guide!
Our Course Selection Night is February 6. We will meet rising 9th graders in  the auditorium, but we welcome parents of current 9th, 10th, and 11th- grade students to meet in the Library to review core coursework and new requirements.
Counselors are always available to meet with families and students. They will work with you and your child throughout the school year. For families who wish to schedule a conference with counselors in February, please see this link to sign up:
