​MAJORS

  • Students select one area of specialization (known as a “MAJOR”) for the entire three weeks. It is important that you are interested in the major you choose, as you will be in that area for about 3 hours each day.
  • All MAJORS are offered in the morning, and ELECTIVES will always be in the afternoon. 
  • We strongly recommend taking Community Service one year while at Senior DECATS, but it is no longer a required course.

ELECTIVES

  • “ELECTIVE” classes meet three days each week, and change each week.
  • Each student can choose nine ELECTIVES over the three week period, unless the ELECTIVE is a "blocked class."
  • The student selects the week and time of the electives, based on the information in the catalog of classes (class descriptions) and the “Class Template” – a chart that shows the name of the class (sometimes abbreviated) week and time of the class. (SEE LINK BELOW)
  • Most electives are offered more than one time during the program, so if one class is filled, there may be a section in another week that is open.
  • Some classes may use more than one class period (for example, SNL-U will be held 12:55 PM – 2:40 PM to allow time to rehearse a performance). ​

ON-LINE CLASS REGISTRATION PROCESS

  • The direct links will be sent to you via E-mail on Saturday morning, March 21, 2020 for preregistered students. One link will be for Class Registration and the other link will be for Transportation. 

Important Tips:

  • Use our Sr. DECATS website at www.srdecats.org to plan your selection of classes ahead of time. Make sure to select three different classes for each Elective period, as classes are limited in size.  For example, if you choose Ping Pong for an elective all three weeks, we will assign you to only one week of Ping Pong.   We'll make every effort to provide you with your 1st choice, but we may need another option for certain time periods.
