Freshman Enrollment FAQ

FAQ

Incoming Freshman Enrollment Information

Why is my student being asked to take an English and Math Placement assessment?
Because we draw from several public and private middle schools, our students do not come to us with a known and consistent set of skills. Sometimes students can come to us with serious gaps in their educational preparation which we need to identify early to provide needed interventions. To help alleviate this issue, all new incoming students take a math and English writing incoming student assessment so that our teachers can be focused on remediation lessons for struggling students and identify those that excel in these subjects.

How will the assessment information be used?
Not only will this information help us to place students in the correct class, but it will also be invaluable to their freshman teachers to know their strengths and weaknesses.

What is Sign Up Genius and how is  it used?
Sign Up Genius is an online tool that HFAA uses periodically to allow parents to sign up for events such as Parent Teacher Conferences and Volunteer Opportunities at our school. Once you create your Sign Up Genius account, store your login/password information for future use. To access our Enrollment Night Sign Up Genius~ Go to our website www.hardingfinearts.org. Click Parents, click Freshman Enrollment Appointment Sign Up.

What can I expect on Enrollment Night?
On enrollment night, you and your student will be meeting with an HFAA enrollment representative. At this time you will be enrolling in both your core courses as well as your elective courses. Freshman are usually able to enroll in two elective courses. Go to our “Elective Courses” page on our website to preview these in advance of your appointment. (www.hardingfinearts.org. Click Academics, Click Elective Courses.)

What can I expect on Schedule Pick-Up and Parent Orientation Night?
Students can pick up their class schedules and parents will complete additional paperwork. (This paperwork and a reminder will be mailed to you this summer prior to this night.)

What if my student doesn’t reside in the Oklahoma City Public School district?
If your student does not reside within the Oklahoma City Public School district, you have until May 31st to apply for an Open Transfer to the OKCPS district. If this applies to you, you can get more information on their website: www. okcps.org or call OKCPS Student Services at 405.587.0438.
