A Message to Parents/Guardians and Students



It is hard to imagine that we are already halfway through the 2023-24 school year and approaching the significant process of course selection. It is essential that students and their parents play an active role in this process, as it will ultimately determine their schedules for the 2024-25 school year. The faculty and counseling staff will gladly assist, as needed, throughout the selection process. We encourage students to take this process very seriously. Students should consult with teachers and certainly their counselor to develop the most appropriate schedule possible.


We would like to welcome the incoming ninth grade class, the class of 2028, to Donegal High School. The course selection process is the first of several steps to help ensure that you have a successful and positive transition from Donegal Junior High School to Donegal High School. As students look through the curriculum guide, they will see general information about our school, course selection sheets, a planning guide and specific course descriptions from each of our departments.


Please carefully note the deadlines associated with the course selection process. We work to maintain these deadlines so that, if possible, we can provide a tentative schedule for all students at the end of the current school year. Students who wish, will have the opportunity to meet individually with their counselors to discuss course selection and their potential course schedule.


The master schedule at Donegal High School is driven by student selection. It is imperative that students take their time, choose responsibly, with intention and purpose while selecting their courses for the upcoming school year. Please read the course descriptions and understand what is expected for each chosen course. Students will not be able to request schedule changes after August 12, 2024.
