Upper School students must carry a minimum course load totaling six (6) academic credits each year, including senior year. Students must accumulate 25 academic credits to earn a Woodward School diploma.
Upper School courses are offered as College Prep, Honors, and Advanced Placement (AP) sections. Honors and AP provide students with the accelerated atmosphere and intellectual challenge necessary to prepare them for work at competitive colleges. Students must be approved for Honors or AP level work based upon demonstrated achievement and serious commitment to studies. The AP Program allows high school students to take college level courses and exams, and to earn college credit or placement while in high school.
The Woodward School offers a comprehensive program of studies for its students, detailed in our Program of Studies document.
