Course Offerings

Department: CIS

Courses taken in grades 7 and 8 (except for courses marked by an asterisk) do not receive high school credit. All grade 9 courses will receive credit and appear on the high school transcript. Cadets are assigned to a “Core” based on several factors. Students within a Core are in the same English Language Arts, Science, and Cultural Studies courses, facilitating interdisciplinary projects, teamwork, and peer support. Each Core has a character-based theme that is woven into each course.
