Academics

 
​All courses of study are college preparatory.  Students are expected to complete a full NYS Regents (R) program. 
 
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are taught in several academic areas.  Currently, AP exams are offered in English, Social Studies, Mathematics and Science.
 
During the third quarter of the first academic year, students select a technology major.  Prior to the actual time of selection, faculty members address the freshmen and provide details about the respective programs.  Brief descriptions of the three major programs follow.
 
The counselors interview and advise students yearly about scheduling options.  It is suggested that you take advantage of the full range of subjects offered, schedule permitting, so that you may prepare yourself for the best career and college opportunities.
