During the 8th grade, cadets shift to the One-Subject Plan full-time and can earn as many as three high school credits throughout the academic year. Each 8th grade cadet will be enrolled in English 8 and Civics 8 at some point during Terms 1-5, though cadets do not receive high school credit for successful completion of these courses. For the other three terms, cadets are enrolled in Upper School courses and will receive high school credit upon successful completion of these courses (though the grades issued in these course will not count towards their high school GPA). These courses typically include a combination of Earth or Environmental Science, Pre-Algebra and/or Algebra 1 (or Geometry in rare cases), a world language, or an elective course.
Our Upper School serves boys in grades 9 through 12, and our postgraduates. Cadets in these grades follow the One Subject Plan curriculum and are provided with extensive opportunities to further their education and skills with various academic, athletic, and extracurricular programs. Honor courses, advanced placement, and dual enrollment programs are also available and encouraged.
(Successful completion of these dual enrollment college courses results in the assignment of both high school and college credit.)
