About the 9-12 Classroom-based Program

in the classroom

Students in grades 9 to 12 can choose classroom-based options. Students may enroll in up to three classes at a time. Classes meet Monday through Thursday. Most students sign up for either a morning or an afternoon session, but there is some flexibility for overlap. A half-hour lunch break separates the two sessions.

Through classroom-based education, we offer:

  • All courses necessary for a high school diploma

  • Small class sizes that meet Monday through Thursday

  • Three classes per six-week session

  • Monthly meetings with a "homeroom" teacher/adviser to track student progress and set new goals

  • Meals, available via the school lunch program


To allow us to serve more students, most students attend either three periods in the morning or three periods in the afternoon. Many students are more successful when they have fewer classes to focus on at one time. 

Students who can work independently outside of class are often able to finish a semester class in less time, usually 6 to 12 weeks. This is due to more individual attention in a smaller class setting.

If you cannot enroll in the classes you need in either morning or afternoon sessions, or if your schedule requires it, we allow flexibility. However, we have a closed campus policy. Once they arrive, students are required to remain on campus until they've attended all their classes. This includes through lunchtime and any class periods, even if they do not have a class scheduled.

Six-Week Sessions

Six-week sessions, which we call "hexes" or "hexmesters," begin:

  • Hex 1 - September 1st, 2021
  • Hex 2 - October 18th, 2021
  • Hex 3 - December 6th, 2021
  • Hex 4 - January 31st, 2022
  • Hex 5 - March 14th, 2022
  • Hex 6 - May 2nd, 2022

These short class sessions allow more ideal entry times for students new to our school.
