Dear High School Student:

Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) are committed to your high school success and transition to a meaningful post-secondary choice for future study and employment. With a clear focus on your learning, we provide you with rich and engaging experiences to help you to make these decisions. Many new courses have been developed to provide you with opportunities to explore a variety of career areas. Options are also available to earn college credits through increased advanced placement, International Baccalaureate, Cambridge, and dual enrollment offerings. We have created an environment where you will learn about your strengths, how these personal strengths connect with career opportunities, and what preparation is needed to successfully transition to the world beyond high school.

The "2021-22 High School Course Catalog" provides you with information about available courses and support services, and serves as a resource to you throughout the school year. A quick reference guide that lists courses by grade level and the print version indicates the page numbers to go to in the "Catalog" for details is included. If you prefer, the "Catalog." Please take the time to carefully review the “Catalog” with your family. This will begin the process of selecting courses for the next school year that are meaningful to you and will help you meet your personal goals.

Our PWCS counselors, teachers, and administrators will work with you to ensure your continued success in meeting graduation requirements and to be certain that your 2021-22 academic program meets your interests and needs.

Sincerely,
Steven L. Walts
Superintendent of Schools
