High School

Advisement and Counseling

Each student is assigned a faculty member as an advisor. This teacher helps students plan their schedules, maintains a record of progress towards graduation requirements, and generally oversees the academic performance of his/her students through frequent meetings.

Honors and Awards

Academic recognitions are given at the end of each school year. The Gold Award is given for straight “A” grades in all academic subjects. The Silver Award recognizes students who receive all “A” and “B” grades. Other recognition is given by departments and various community groups for outstanding performance.

POSTGRADUATE PROGRAM

Students use our postgraduate opportunities to take advanced level classes, improve grades in previously taken classes, or to study English before moving on to college. Families considering a postgraduate year will consult with our academic deans to design the best possible program to strengthen the student for success in the right college or university.
