Students also have the opportunity to take online courses through Classical Academy Online or take courses at a local community college.
CAHS studio (classroom) courses follow the quarter system. This allows students to focus on 3-4 courses at one time. The majority of courses are considered “accelerated” in which a year’s worth of content is covered in 18 weeks. Yearlong courses (which meet for a full 36 weeks) include all levels of math, advanced placement courses, physical education courses, and some of electives.
