Dear Student,

St. Hubert High School exists so that students will become women of faith and integrity, leaders in the 21st Century. This is accomplished through an outstanding and varied educational experience, which includes academic and spiritual programs, as well as a variety of sports and extracurricular activities. The academic program is designed to challenge students to achieve their full potential. A discussion with parents/guardians, teachers, counselors and department chairpersons should help you reach decisions that best serve your needs. Soon you will be choosing courses for next year. This will be accomplished online, and procedures will be explained to you in an assembly. If you are seeking exceptions for courses for which you may not be qualified, you must obtain a course exception form and follow all directions for submission, including deadlines. We encourage you to stretch your learning and reach into new areas. High school is the best time to reach for the stars! We wish you the best in your selections and future studies. Sincerely,

Mrs Craig Principal

Students need approval of the Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs to register for more than 2 AP courses in one year. Students taking AP Courses must take the AP test. There is an AP fee of approximately $90.00 per test.


POLICY REGARDING CHANGE OF COURSES Selection of courses should be done only after serious, careful and thoughtful consideration. Therefore, once you choose your courses and they are approved, you will be expected to abide by your decision. Due to complexities of rostering students, it is imperative that parents and students realize that schedules cannot be arranged to accommodate after school commitments. The only valid reasons for requesting a change would be if you were assigned a course you did not request or for which you were not qualified. If for any other reason a change or drop is requested, the Academic Affairs Office reviews the request and makes the final decision. If approved, there will be a $35.00 fee.

TRACKING SYSTEM Most courses are offered on two or more levels or tracks. Since the range of ability among students is extensive, it is felt that tracking narrows the range to where maximum student achievement is possible. There are four different tracks on which a course may be offered: AP

Honors Track 2 Track 3

- College level courses that follow syllabi of The Advanced Placement Program of the College Board - College preparatory courses for the exceptionally gifted and industrious student - College preparatory courses for students of above average ability - College preparatory or general classes for students of average ability


COURSE DESCRIPTIONS The courses listed in this booklet are planned for the 2013 - 2014 school year. The School Administration reserves the right to cancel a course or merge two track offerings if an insufficient number of students register for a course or if other conditions warrant such a move.

THEOLOGY DEPARTMENT Religious education endeavors to carry on the mission entrusted to the Church by Jesus within the dimensions of Message-Community-Service. Theology teachers proclaim the Gospel of the Risen Lord, which alone gives meaning to life, in order to arouse in the students a faith which is living and active. The goal of the Theology Program at St. Hubert High School is to present the basic teaching of the Catholic Christian message and to lead the students to value what the Department has established as its objectives: - to attain an openness to the actions of the Holy Spirit - to encourage a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and to the values He expresses - to develop an appreciation for Sacred Scripture and the tradition of God’s people - to promote an active and genuine participation in the Liturgy of the Church, and a habit of personal prayer - to arouse a desire to answer the Church’s call to service - to create a sense of loyalty and affection for the Church - to inspire a spirit of involvement in the issues of peace and justice in the world. Many of the courses described below include journal writing as part of the course work. Specific requirements for maintaining a journal may vary from teacher to teacher, however, as a rule, journals are spot-checked by the teacher and not usually read wordfor-word.

PHYSICS – General Introduction Physics is the study of energy transformation and interactions with matter. Topics studied include mechanics, heat, light, sound, electricity, magnetism, radiation, atomic, and nuclear phenomena. Since it is a basic science, physics is highly recommended for anyone who wishes to pursue further studies in any of the sciences as well as for those who wish to be scientifically literate. All physics courses are college preparatory. They differ in the level of mathematics (and, therefore, math pre-requisites), the depth of topic coverage and the number of laboratory sessions. 440

WORLD LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT The World Language Department offers Spanish, French, Italian and Latin. In these times of international communication, commerce and diplomacy, the knowledge of a second language is an invaluable asset to any career and will enhance the student’s chances of success in every sphere. Minimum college requirements at most area colleges stipulate two years of one modern language. Many colleges request that students consider three or four years of one language rather than two years of two languages. Any freshman or sophomore who is not already taking a language is asked to preregister with the language department chairperson. Students who qualify for Latin will be invited to register for that course.

Language 1 The first year is a basic introductory course using proficiency-based texts. It aims to give the student the ability to begin to become proficient in the language through listening and dialogues between students and teachers and the knowledge of fundamental grammar. Stories, videos, computer software, DVDs and songs acquaint the student with the historical and cultural background of the people. Pre-requisite: Acceptance by department

Language 2 The proficiency-based approach is continued and fundamental concepts are built. Emphasis is placed on grammatical and reading skills, as well as speaking, with further development of vocabulary. Proficiency skills are enhanced through group projects and cooperative learning activities. Pre-requisite: Recommendation of teacher

Language 3 Level 3 of all languages develops basic language skills by providing expanded practice in the target language, by using important grammar structures in reading and writing. The curriculum is expanded to include the history and civilization of the language being taught. Pre-requisites: Recommendation of Language 2 teacher based on academic performance (both written and oral), genuine interest and available space

Language 4 The main thrust of this year is to improve communication skills. There is a further development of the knowledge of literature, history, art and music of the language. Students learn to apply skills mastered in levels 1 – 3 through cognitive learning and inferential processes. Pre-requisites: Recommendation of Language 3 teacher based on academic performance (both written and oral), genuine interest and available space


N.B. Please note that Spanish 1 and 2, Track 3 is a two-year-only program. Due to the slower pace of instruction and reduced amount of material covered through the use of a more basic textbook program, students in Spanish 2, Track 3, may only enroll in Spanish 3 with the recommendation of their Spanish 2 teacher and with a commitment to study additional vocabulary during the summer. Placement is also conditional on class size. 511 512 513

GR 12

The purpose of the course is to provide a basic foundation in the science of nutrition, and to show how nutrition can be applied to dietary selection of foods with simultaneous consideration of economic, psychological, social and cultural factors. The course gives a great deal of information that is useful and necessary for those students who are thinking about future study in any health related field. Today’s society puts a great deal of emphasis on the awareness of good health and the role that we assume pertaining to the important issues on nutrition. Some nursing schools require a basic course in nutrition as part of their curriculum. The major aim of the Child Development course is to focus attention on the young child as a unique individual. The course follows an in-depth study of pre-natal development and birth, and then progresses to the intellectual, emotional, social and physical development of the child from infancy to age six. The student, through a better understanding of children, should come to a better understanding of herself. The course also serves as a preparation for parenthood.
