The four-year academic program is anchored by the Academic Enrichment 9, 10, 11, and 12 courses. Each course is designed to complement instruction in the six core subjects, while developing in students the necessary skills to be successful, responsible, and conscientious learners.
Academic Enrichment 9 focuses on the transition to high school, teaching students to apply evidence-based study skills in their learning. Additionally, students will be introduced to computer programming, guided through lessons in digital citizenship, and given the chance to develop 21st-century skills like communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.
Academic Enrichment 10 is a continuation of the freshman program. Continuing with lessons in digital citizenship, study skills, computer programming, and 21st-century skills, students are also given standardized-test preparation and focused instruction on research and inquiry.
Academic Enrichment 11 continues previous instruction in study skills, computer programming, and standardized-test preparation but also introduces students to financial literacy. Students work in the Bloomberg Financial Center, learning how to use Bloomberg Financial software on our 20 terminals.
Academic Enrichment 12 helps students turn toward the college process. In addition to continuing previous instruction in study skills, computer programming, and the Bloomberg program, students work with the College Placement Office to complete their college applications and begin the transition to post-secondary study.
