Academic & Career Planning

course request process for the next school year

The scheduling process is an exciting part of defining your high school experience. At OHS, we offer more than 200 classes that can help you explore topics of interest, several programs that may help you learn more about potential career-focused learning opportunities, and hands-on experiences that allow you to apply your interest in real-world settings. Our teachers and support staff are incredibly proud of the opportunities that exist at OHS, and we look forward to helping you identify the best classes to help you achieve your goals!


The Academic and Career Planning Guide allows you to easily access each department’s course offerings and descriptions. Please take some time to review the document and course descriptions as you prepare to make your course requests for next year. The guide will provide the following information:

  • Course descriptions
  • Career clusters and pathways of study
  • Graduation requirements
  • Grading and credit information
  • Exceptional learning opportunities
  • Scheduling timeline
  • Course request sheets
  • Student Services information
