High school language arts courses build on the literary components that students learn in elementary and middle school courses and dives into more complex pieces of literature while furthering students’ developing writing skills. Westudents read, assess, and make conclusions for increasingly complex texts—both fiction and non-fiction—written by authors with diverse backgrounds. Comparing cultures through literary work expands the understanding of other subjects and the world as a whole.

The high school science curriculum involves five subject areas: physical science, biology, chemistry, physics, and environmental science. We offer various scholastic levels for most of these subjects, such as general, honors, and Advanced Placement.
Our science courses instruct students to apply scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies as they relate to the physical world. We see the value in laboratory science, because it allows students to see the concepts that they are learning come to life. Each lesson will involve a video experiment in addition to the lectures and coursework.
Upon completion of our science curriculum, students will have a deep understanding of scientific methods and theories.
History and social studies gives students the opportunity to learn from past events and apply these lessons to their present and future lives. Learning about world history is essential to understanding where we come from as a society. Our U.S. Government course will prepare students to be engaged citizens that perform their civic duties.
In addition to history and government, Economics, Geography, Personal Finance, and Psychology are all fascinating subjects that introduce various concepts that can be applied to everyday life to our students. These subjects are also a great way for students to explore interests and potential career opportunities.
The students can explore their interest in the fine arts in any of our three courses: Music Appreciation, AP Music Theory, AP Studio Art – Drawing.

Coding is quickly becoming part of the modern world’s literacy. We offers courses from the Acellus STEM-10 initiative. Engineered to significantly increase the number of students prepared for high-tech careers right out of high school, the program begins at basic level, expanding each year in sophistication and complexity.
High school is a wonderful time to pursue subject areas that could lead to career opportunities. We provides a long list of courses that will introduce a variety of industries. These include, but are not limited to, agriculture, business, HVAC, and medicine.
Since technical and business fields are expanding, it is important that young students have the opportunity to learn about these subjects before they enter college or the workforce. When given this opportunity, students are better able to determine if they have any interest in exploring one of these industries as their future career.
All of these courses are designed to give students a clear picture of what will be expected from professionals who choose these career paths. To build these classes, we have worked with industry professionals to determine proper coursework.
With these classes, we hope that students are inspired to continue studying their selected field.
