SECONDARY LEVELS I–IV
The secondary program prepares students for colleges and universities in the United States and other countries. The rigorous academic program consists of the disciplines of Mathematics, Laboratory Science (Biology, Physics, and Chemistry), World Cultural Studies and History, World Literature, English Grammar and Literature, Art, Music, Physical Education, French, German and Slovak, as well as Computer Literacy.
Advanced Placement Program (AP) courses are also offered (AP World History, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Literature, AP Psychology, AP Statistics, AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC). Foreign Languages include German, French, and Slovak. We also offer German and Slovak for native speakers. Courses offered per year are dependent on the needs of the students that year. Three Diplomas are offered—General, Academic, and Academic with Honors.
International Baccalaureate Program (IB) to students ages 16–19, typically during the Secondary III and IV years. The QSI courses offered in a student’s Secondary I and II years prepare most students to take IB courses. Students may elect to enroll in the IB Diploma program as full diploma candidates or as course candidates. Enrollment of students is done through one-on-one counseling with the Director of Instruction and the IB Coordinator, beginning in the spring of a student’s Secondary II year. Prerequisite skills are required for the program, but specific prerequisite courses are not necessarily required.
