Students taking the August 26 SAT at Bishop McNamara High School should park in the Mt. Calvary Catholic Church and school parking lot and enter the building through Bishop McNamara's front doors, located just off the circular drive. Parents should drop off and pick up students from the Mount Calvary parking lot as well.
The Course Bulletin is designed to aid a student in selecting courses for the school year. It is published at the time of pre-registration to assist students in the selection of courses required of them for graduation. The courses are listed by department.
The information in the Course Bulletin is subject to change. A minimum enrollment of at least 15 to 20 students is usually required before a course can be considered a permanent part of the curriculum for the next school year. Students are reminded of the complex nature of a master schedule, and the difficulties associated with the changing of courses after the master schedule has been constructed. Therefore, a considerable amount of reflection and study should precede the selection of classes at the time of preregistration. Unless there is an irresolvable conflict in the choice of courses, which should only occur in a very small percentage of situations, the classes chosen by the student at the time of preregistration will become the official schedule for the upcoming year. (Requests for schedule changes made after preregistration must be based on extraordinary circumstances, must be made on the official school form, and a fee of $30.00 must be attached.)
Several courses require separate course applications. For a full listing of these courses, applications, deadlines, and additional documentation, go to
