High School

Grades 9-12

The high school environment provides an authentic college preparatory experience. Students are given course syllabi that guide their work in each class for eight weeks of study.

 

While at the college level, students participate in approximately 3 hours of lectures and 9-15 hours of work outside of the classroom. At The Grove, that experience is built into their weekly schedule. Students are given short foundational lessons in their classes each week. The remaining class time is spent completing weekly assignments independently, collaboratively or with additional teacher support.  

One of the key elements of the high school experience is enrollment in dual credit courses. Juniors in good standing will be able to complete courses for college and high school credit. Depending on personal interest and motivation, students may graduate from The Grove with a full year of college credit. 

Just like in the junior high program, students at the high school level participate in a class trip experience but are now able to travel internationally. They must still meet specific fundraising and academic requirements in order to participate. 

"The adolescent must never be treated as a child, for that is the stage of life that he has surpassed. It is better to treat an adolescent as if he had greater value than he actually shows than as if he had less and let him feel that his merits and self-respect are disregarded."

-Dr. Maria Montessori
