As students select courses, they are encouraged to enroll in the most rigorous course possible to best prepare for college and career. Ninth, tenth, and eleventh grades choose a full-year course:

Seniors elect a full year course - British and World Literature or Advanced Placement Literature and Composition - or choose from a variety of semester-long electives: Creative Writing, Critical Reading, Media and Literature, or Writer's Workshop.
 
In addition to these core courses, students may also choose electives in broadcast, drama, journalism, and/or speech. Moreover, students are encouraged to reenroll in Advanced Drama, Journalism Production, and Speech if they have great interest in exploring these areas in college or professionally. (Creative Writing may also be taken in addition to senior core courses as an elective.)
