Fairview Course Description Guide 2024 - 2025

Course Selection Process 

The Course Selection Process is an important part of the high school experience.  Fairview High School Teachers and Counselors are involved in providing recommendations and advice for students in terms of what classes might be a good fit for them, will meet their graduation requirements, will meet college entrance requirements, and will allow them to explore their interests.  The process of choosing classes is a collaborative process between students, parents, teachers, and counselors.

What students choose to take also directly impacts what classes are offered at FHS, so it is very important that students are thoughtful and spend time thinking about what classes they really want to take.  Schedule changes will be difficult to accommodate in the future.  The course selection window in February and March is the timeframe for students to really think about what classes they want to take in the following year.  This is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of options outside of FHS such as classes at Boulder TEC or our many Grad+ options. For more information, please contact your counselor or our Fairview Grad+ site lead, Vanessa Carroll at

High school is a great time to explore and cultivate your passions, talents, and interests! Fairview is known for its excellence in academics, arts, and athletics, which you will find reflected in our many core and elective course offerings.


It is expected that all freshmen and sophomores be enrolled in a minimum of six classes all year.  Juniors and seniors are required to take at least six classes in the fall and five classes in the spring.  Students must have a minimum of five classes in order to maintain Athletic Eligibility requirements and participate in Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) sanctioned activities.  Students should consider their overall workload both inside and outside of the classroom and be sure to pick a well-balanced course load.

Current FHS students will select their courses using the Multi-Year Academic Planner (MYAP) in Infinite Campus.  The MYAP is visible for parents/guardians to see in their IC portal as well.  

Course Selection Timeline

Step 1:  Counselors visit all Social Studies classrooms in grade 9-11 in mid-February to review the course selection process, graduation requirements, college entrance requirements, and more.  Students will receive a copy of their transcript to help with this process.

Step 2:  Teachers speak to students about what classes are available for them to take and what their recommendations are for next year.

Step 3:  Students will start entering their course selections in their MYAP in IC.  This is a great time for parents/guardians and students to have conversations about their class choices for next year.

Step 4:  Students will finalize their course selections with the counselors in early March.  Once this process is complete, students' classes choices are locked in for students and cannot be changed.

Step 5:  Teachers will review student course selections as necessary and make any changes based on their recommendation.  If a teacher changes what a student selected for themselves, the teacher will inform the student.  If the student and parent/guardian would like to take a class that was not recommended by the teacher they can fill out a course recommendation override form (available in the counseling office).
