Chemistry, Consumer Economics, Local & Modern History, and Computer II will be taught during the 2014-2015 school year.

* While neither Physics nor Chemistry is required for graduation, we recommend at least one of these courses, since most colleges will require them for admission.

College-level courses are available in mathematics and science. To qualify for college mathematics, students must have successfully taken Precalculus or its equivalent. To qualify for college science, students must have successfully completed all available high school courses. High school credit is given for college-level courses; if college credit is desired, there is an additional tuition charge of $25.00 per credit. Permission from the high school principal, registrar, and academic dean is required.

Note: The availability of elective subjects is contingent upon student demand, the availability of teachers, and the schedule.
