Online Course Request

Online Course Registration for the 2016-17 school year will begin on Monday, February 8th. Students and parents can access the online registration portal using StudentVue or ParentVue. If you do not have an account, you will need to come to the Counseling office and ask for your access code. Access codes cannot be given out over the phone or via email for security reasons. 
 
Directions for online registration and a short demonstration video can be found on the MVHS website under the Counseling Center tab on the left sidebar of the MVHS Home page.
 
All students are asked to register for classes online prior to the Friday, February 19th, deadline when the portal will be closed. Students will need to return the registration form they received at the information session assembly as soon as they have completed their online registration. This will indicate that the student is ready to meet with their counselor to finalize their requests.
