STAR Student and Teacher

We are very proud to announce that Loren Tsang has been selected as this year’s STAR student for Pope HS.  This means that Loren is in the top 10% of his class and achieved the highest score on a single administration of the SAT.  Each STAR student chooses a STAR teacher.  This is the teacher that the student feels has had the greatest impact on them while at Pope HS.  Loren has selected Jessica Kelly as his STAR teacher.  This is a tremendous honor and we are very proud of both of them.

Pope Course Registration for 2018-19

Planning for the 2018-2019 school year has begun.  An important component to this process is the careful consideration of core and elective classes by students.  The 2018-2019 Core and Elective Registration document addresses most commonly asked questions about course registration, options and deadlines.  Pope families are encouraged to discuss the registration process and to review course descriptions available in the 2018-2019 Pope High School course catalog.  Remember – Students will register for year-long courses and it is important students make informed decisions regarding their course selections.
