CLASS SCHEDULING INFORMATION
We have a lot of amazing things happening here at North Delta! We are working very hard every day to ensure that we offer the best opportunities for your students and for our school. As things evolve, I will do my best to keep you informed along the way. We update course offerings each year, usually in the spring, and we will post and/or email those out for you to view and discuss with your student. I keep track of credits for each student. I also push for each student to take some responsibility over their course options and paths because it requires them to set personal goals. We believe that setting goals helps students find purpose in what they are doing, and these important factors lead them to success. We are providing you with information regarding our graduation requirements.
Careful consideration should go into college and career plans when making decisions about which courses your student should take. Students must have 24 credits to meet North Delta graduation and the recommended College Prep Curriculum (CPC) for Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning admission requirements.
Be on the lookout for emails that contain updates, as well as academic information and guidance.
As always, I am here to help and happy to do so! If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me by phone (662) 563-4536 or email, email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support of our school.

COLLEGE PREP PROGRAM
Our principal academic focus is ensuring that graduates possess the tools they need to succeed at the next level of their educational pursuit. Our course offerings are tailored to meet or exceed the admission standards of most colleges and universities within the mid-south. At North Delta, we require a minimum of 24 credits to graduate.
Prior to graduation, every student within the college preparatory program at North Delta will complete:
- 4 units of English
- 4 units of math, Algebra I and higher
- 4 units of science, Biology I and higher
- 4 units of social studies
- 1 unit of technology
- 1 unit of fine arts
- 4 elective units
- 2 units of advanced electives
We recommend that all students in grades nine through twelve enroll in a minimum of five courses per year. Courses taught in the eighth grade (but at the high school level) may receive credit towards graduation.
We also offer courses to junior and senior students who would like a greater depth and acceleration of academic study. Starting with eighth-grade math, these courses can lead to dual credit and dual enrollment opportunities for college credit.
Thanks to our partnership with Northwest Mississippi Community College, we proudly offer the following dual-credit courses at North Delta School.
- English Composition 101
- English Composition 102
- College Algebra
- College Trig
- U.S. History 201 - Juniors only
- U.S. History 202 - Juniors only
- DC Art - Juniors only
Dual Credit classes will be included in student GPAs. We offer these higher-level courses to give students the opportunity to earn both high school and college credits at the same time. There are prerequisites to dual credit participation. We will discuss these individually prior to course registration.
We also partner with Northwest Community College to offer dual enrollment courses which will be taught online. These classes will not be included in student GPAs, but will give the student the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school. These courses are as follows:
- United States History 201 - Seniors only
- United States History 202 - Seniors only
- Art Appreciation - Seniors only
- Public Speaking
