Beginning in middle school, students will have an opportunity to begin exploring a broadening range of electives that lead into the high school Academies. During high school, students can enter an academy sequence directly in 9th grade, or they can begin later in their high school career. This gives students the advantage of trying multiple paths or even discovering their passion later in their high school career. The academy sequence is intended to prepare students for greater depth of study upon embarking on a capstone study their senior year through the Landmark Scholars Program. While it is not required that students complete a full academy sequence prior to entry into the Scholars Program, doing so will add a significant degree of depth to their ultimate product.
