2020-21 Program of Studies

Each year, usually near the end of the fall semester, Elmwood Park High School publishes a Program of Studies for the next school year. The booklet includes course descriptions as well as explanations of graduation requirements, grading and the course selection process.

The 2020-21 booklet is now available, and it features two main differences from previous editions. First, the new Program of Studies is organized around District 401's College & Career Pathways program. Second, because of the Pathways focus, the booklet includes information about Elm Middle School courses in addition to EPHS academics.

About the Pathways Program

The goal of College & Career Pathways is to better prepare D401 students to compete and succeed in the global economy.

With the help of aligned programs of study and pathways exploration, students will graduate with well-developed post-secondary plans, stronger experiential learning opportunities and a diverse set of skills suited for academic and career success.
