THE CCES CHALLENGE

Upper School Curriculum Guide 2016-17 (PDF)

Welcome to the academic challenge of Christ Church Episcopal Upper School, where expectations are commensurate with strong preparation for college, leadership, and life. The International
Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, Advanced Placement, Honors, and Global Online Academy (GOA) classes provide the additional challenges and rewards sought by many of our students. We aim to provide students at all levels with a rigorous curriculum that fits their needs, interests, and goals.

In addition to the curriculum described in this guide, CCES also has a rich co-curricular program that encompasses numerous athletic teams, rich opportunities in the fine arts, and myriad different clubs and organizations. Community service activities are required for all grade levels and are an integral part of what makes a CCES student responsive to the needs of our greater community.

This curriculum guide has been created to assist in the selection of classes. Please be advised that courses will be offered based on student interest and teacher availability. Students will be provided
extensive recommendations and guidance from faculty, advisors, and administration. They and parents should consider a variety of factors, including overall load, strengths and weaknesses, requirements for graduation, and goals for college and beyond, when selecting courses. To this end, examples of four-year course sequences are located in the section entitled “Course of Study” to assist in planning for the years ahead. Please feel free to contact the Upper School Director or Assistant Director with any questions regarding academic guidance.
