As a four-year college preparatory school, careful consideration is given to making up each student’s program of studies. A student’s academic placement is based on his/her previous academic performance, standardized test results, and individual course preferences. When students submit their final course selections, these choices are considered final. Course changes are only made for the most compelling reasons. Parents are required to submit written request for such change being sure to include the reasons for the change. No courses may be added or dropped from a student’s schedule after the second week of school.
