Course Sequence

  • The high school curriculum is a rigorous four-year sequence of courses that, when combined with college preparatory mathematics and science, will prepare students for a successful post-secondary experience. However, even students who do not intend to pursue further formal education will benefit from the knowledge, team building strategies, and problem-solving abilities taught in these courses.

    This unique learning environment is designed to give students a highly focused learning experience, while also giving them a wide variety of elective choices available in a large high school setting.
