The Center School


Curriculum Overview

The Center School’s course offering is intentionally narrower than those of large comprehensive high schools, reflecting best practices based on current educational research within an arts-integrated, college preparatory-focused curriculum. Our small school size offers a stimulating educational environment, including a rigorous, standards-based core academic program in the humanities, math, science, and Spanish.

As part of our commitment to college preparedness for all of our students, The Center School offers AP courses and requires a full 24 credits to graduate. This is the current standard for applying to most four-year universities, so even if a graduating senior isn’t sure college is the next immediate step, the door has been opened for that option.
