Program Of Studies

Core Curriculum

Students in Grades 6-10 take foundational classes to prepare for advanced electives. Working with a faculty advisor, students plan their two-year Program of Study before beginning the eleventh grade. In Grades 11 and 12, students can choose their math and science programs from an extensive list of electives.

Course placement for incoming students is based on placement testing. All incoming students are required to take a placement test that includes a math placement test and a Degrees of Reading Power test.
