Mundelein High School Academics

Course Guide

2019-2020 Course Guide

The Course Guide contains information on graduation requirements, Common Core State Standards, NCAA Clearinghouse requirements, and every course offered at Mundelein High School. It lists the following for each course: prerequisites, grade level criteria, number of terms, number of credits, and the course description. In addition, Mundelein High School frames course selection in the context of Programs of Study. Please take time to review and discuss the Programs of Study with your son/daughter, so that our students choose courses that align with their post-secondary plans. 

Each student will receive a Course Selection Worksheet; this worksheet lists every course offered next year for each grade level, along with the number of terms the course meets. Next to the department heading is a corresponding page number in the Course Guide. Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are required to fill 7 periods for the year. (See the 4-year plan.)

Beginning in December, counselors will schedule individual appointments with each student. During the appointments, counselors will review graduation requirements, record course selections, and discuss post- high school plans. 

Please contact our Guidance Department at (847) 949-2200 if you have any questions.
