Advanced Program

Program Overview

An Advanced course curriculum is an enriched, accelerated program; it is a Tier II weighted course and receives more grade points than an grade-level academic Tier I course.

Advanced courses expect a greater retention and appreciation of prior knowledge, as well as deeper understanding of the course topics. Advanced courses are designed to prepare for Dual Credit or IB courses and teach the skills necessary for success in those courses. Advanced courses may require up to six (6) hours of preparation time per course per week, and students should expect extensive reading and writing assignments. Enrolling in an Advanced course is highly recommended for students who wish to take Dual Credit or IB courses in the future.
