High School Courses

Integrated Approach vs. Subjects:

Rolling Acres School curriculum exceeds the goals of most High School humanities programs; however, our integrated approach means that there is not a direct one-to-one correlation with curricula that utilize a division by "subjects." Nonetheless, we offer this table to help plan for your academic needs and to craft your transcripts to fulfill state requirements. We recommend the following courses for grades 10–12.
