Upper School Curriculum
The Upper School Curriculum is designed to provide a balanced liberal arts foundation in the first three years and a senior year that enables the student great choice and exploration of interests. Students must carry five full courses each semester in addition to physical education, graduating with a minimum of 22 credits (any exceptions must be approved by the Upper School Head.)
In the first three years students take English, laboratory science, mathematics, history, and foreign language in addition to courses in the fine and performing arts, affective education, physical education, SAT preparation, and public speaking. In the senior year, an English course must be taken each semester and a fourth year of mathematics is required.
In addition to the academic requirements, each student is required to complete a minimum of sixty community service hours, forty in one location, as well as a Senior Speech and a Senior Project.
Honors as well as Regular sections are available in most languages, English, history, mathematics, and science. Mathematics classes have three sections: Regular, Accelerated and Honors.
