Some students choose to independently prepare for an AP exam while concurrently enrolled in the course offered at school, such as United States History, Biology, or English. 

In this case, the teacher provides extensions to their curriculum that match AP standards and testing requirements while still offering a more traditional classroom setting.

College preparation and the SATs play an important part of our school culture.

Students are first exposed to the SAT exam in 8th grade when they, along with the 9th graders, take the PSAT 8/9 exam.

11th grade students also take the SAT in May of their junior year. 

Students are provided with a College Board account beginning in 9th grade. This allows them to access individualized SAT prep lessons through Khan Academy.

Students may opt to take a semester-long online SAT prep class during their junior year.
