Program of Studies
for the 2018 - 2019 School Year

Program Planning


Careful program planning by parents and students is of critical importance. The course of studies followed while in high school is the foundation upon which future success will be based. A broad program of studies will enable students to prepare for college or employment upon completion of their senior year. The complete listing of subjects offered can be found in the Course Descriptions section. Since courses are not limited to specific grades, students may select any course which is offered except for those courses with prerequisites or where exceptions are noted. While selection of a program of studies is the primary responsibility of the student and his or her parents, they are well advised to consult with and make use of the broad experience and professional background of our faculty and school counseling staff. Also available for student and parent use is a wide variety of material such as college and career websites and the school counseling website including the Naviance program. Students and parents are encouraged to make use of the school’s College and Career Center.
