Courses

All of the classes during the school year meet state and national standards and are taught by Michigan-certified instructors. We are fully accredited so the credits also meet college entrance requirements.

Core courses are generally full-year classes worth 1.0 credit and are scheduled for students in 1/2 credit or semester formats. For example, a full year of Algebra is offered as Algebra A and Algebra B, each worth 0.5 credits. Most elective and non-core classes are a semester or 0.5 credit classes.
