Choosing your Courses

If you are not a current student at STA, please see the New Student Zone in the menu above.

Choosing courses and making appointments for current STA students:

To change courses, please read information in your Guidance Classroom for your grade (Google Classroom) about course change windows of time, and make an appointment using the "Make a Guidance Appointment" form in the CLASSWORK section during those windows of time.  The form can be used for other Guidance questions as well.

Course Selections for Next Year

The due date for current student course selection for the 2021-22 school year: Feb. 26, 2021.  After this time Xello is not able to accept changes and an appointment needs to be made with Guidance.

To select courses we use XELLO. 
Be sure you are logged into your computer under your SMCDSB account.  It will not work if you are logged into other accounts, including other Gmail accounts.

XELLO is reached by going to your Student Connect/Bright Space page, and clicking on the XELLO Tab, then "Course Planner".
