Academic Offerings

ELEMENTARY COURSES

All students must take a minimum of six courses in order to be considered a full time student in the state of Michigan.  Most students will take four core courses (math, science, ELA, history/social studies) and two electives in order to meet this requirement.  It is possible, however, for us to count ELA and Math as two periods in grades K-2 because they have multiple components.
