The ninth grade is structured as an alternating MW/TTh schedule; each day consists of three core courses and an elective. Fridays are flex days to permit student/teacher conferences, guest speakers, and/or community outreach. Our campus will remain open after school for students wishing to expand their academic interests or participate in extracurricular activities such as clubs, sports, music, etc.
As a college preparatory school, the ninth grade will set the foundation for advanced studies, the International Baccalaureate curriculum, and individual interests in subsequent years. All students will take required courses in English and World and Social Perspectives consistent with the school’s mission of developing a conscious world view. This schedule offers a Semester Elective – which allows the student to focus on an area of interest – and a Nine Week Exploratory Elective – in which the student will explore a variety of less familiar subjects ensuring a diversity of interests and perspectives.
