The Freehold Regional High School District recognizes that learning can and should follow many paths, some of which travel outside of the traditional classroom.
Successful completion of such alternative experiences can result in credit with a grade of "S" on our transcript and/or advancement to a higher level course. All experiences must begin with an application here, which allows us to ensure that the proposal meets or exceeds New Jersey and district requirements.
We applaud your child's initiative in pursuing this experience and appreciate your cooperation with the application process and its deadlines. We must examine and make determinations about all outside schools, organizations, and coaches; several days or weeks may pass before we are able to render a decision on the application. We regret that we are unable to recognize any experience that a student has begun without an approved application.Learn more about our options below. Click on the appropriate link to begin your application.
If you are interested in credit and/or advancement in any subject (except Physical Education), click here to learn more and to apply.
If you are interested in Physical Education credit, you must pursue an "Option II" program. Before applying for an Option II program, you must first determine the type of experience that you propose to replace your gym class. We offer three types of Option II programs.The Option II deadline for 2019-2020 school year applications is August 2, 2019. Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2018-2019 school year. No late applications will be accepted. Any questions or concerns should be directed to the Guidance Supervisor at your child’s school.
PATH A, for 10th through 12th graders: Participation in two or more NJSIAA-recognized JV and/or Varsity sports or two seasons of JV/Varsity cheerleading at the high school. (Students wishing to pursue this path, must have successfully participated in the criteria outlined above during the previous school year.)
PATH C, for 9th through 12th graders: Continuous high-level training, practice, performance, and/or competition in an athletic or physical activity for at least 150 minutes per week with an approved organization, coach, and/or teacher.*Please note: The completed application does not guarantee acceptance into the Option II program. Applications are reviewed and a decision is made based on fulfillment of the specific criteria for each path. You will receive a confirmation email when/if your application is approved.
All students interested in pursuing the Option II for any portion of the 2019-2020 school year must complete the form in Genesis annually by August 2, 2019 regardless of past participation in Option II. No late applications will be accepted.
