Register for classes
Registration for freshmen
Incoming freshmen who did not register at Incoming Nighthawk Night can still register for classes online or by making an appointment with our Student Services director at (720) 423-8097.
Students can register online in a few steps:
- Take a look at the Northfield High School Program Guide, which explains what classes are required and gives an explanation of electives.
- Decide which classes you will take next year. All students will be enrolled in seven classes. Freshmen will take four core classes (Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science), with the option to take a higher level math class if they have already completed Algebra 1. This leaves three electives. Students can choose their three top choices for electives and then three backup choices. Use this Freshmen course selection form to organize your choices.
- Fill out the online registration form with the classes you want to take at goo.gl/forms/HEYbwot6gNSVulIp1
- Please do this by April 25.
That’s it! You’re all set for next year.
Registration for incoming sophomores and juniors
Sophomores and juniors who will be new to Northfield next year must make an appointment with Ms. Bencomo to register for next year’s classes at (720) 423-8097.
