In grades 9-12, a typical schedule consists of three academic courses requiring final exams and one low-homework-bearing course with no final exam. Back-to-back terms may vary the weight of the academic program.
The 12th grade program includes English, American Government, Upper School PE, and other requirements still to be fulfilled for graduation. In order to ensure completion of graduation requirements and for college planning purposes, students must consult with the Academic Dean before selection of courses for the senior year.
Online School for Girls
Students are encouraged to take courses through the Online School for Girls by contacting the Academic Dean and seeking approval for registration. Students may earn no more than one credit per year through online courses and must have these credits pre-approved by the Academic Dean in order for the credits to count on a La Pietra transcript for graduation.
