View Curriculum High School Choice

Create the curriculum that best fits your needs...
New homeschoolers often want CLASS to use our 40 years of curriculum experience to design their curriculum for them. Many experienced home schoolers still appreciate how CLASS can relieve some or all of the task of curriculum selection. There are also new and experienced homeschoolers who want to take a more active role in curriculum choice. No matter which group you are in, CLASS can work with you to provide a curriculum with the best fit for your child.

With that in mind, we want to welcome you to the new High School Choice Plan where you get to participate in constructing your student’s curriculum! First take a look at our high school graduation requirements.

You may choose some or all of your student’s courses in order to fulfill our graduation requirements. Any missing requirements will be selected for you by CLASS. You will have an opportunity to let us know your choices during the enrollment process

We hope you enjoy “shopping” for the courses that meet your student’s interests while fulfilling our high school requirements. If you have any questions about the process, please contact us at custserv@homeschools.org.

Graduation Requirements
In order to graduate from CLASS and receive a high school diploma, a student must successfully complete a minimum of twenty (20) credits in the following areas of study:

  Theological Studies 4.0 credits
  English 4.0 credits (including 1.0 credit of grammar and 0.5 credit research paper)
  Mathematics 2.0 credits (including 1.0 credit of Algebra 1 or a higher level algebra course)
  Science 2.0 credits (including 1.0 credit of biology)
  Heritage Studies 5.0 credits (including 1.0 credit of government and 1.0 credit of economics)
  Additional Courses 3.0 credits minimum (student may select from any available courses)
  Art, Music, and Physical Education No academic credit awarded (subjects assigned each year; requirements are set by the family)

Students transferring into CLASS at the tenth grade or higher may be eligible to waive some Theological Studies and/or Heritage Studies credits (all other areas of study must be fulfilled in their entirety). For example, a tenth grader who has never had a Theological course would not be required to make up the ninth grade credit, but would still need to take the three remaining credits.

Distribution of Required Academic Areas and Subjects
The following table shows the distribution of required academic areas and subjects for a ninth grade student who completes our high school program. This illustration may be modified for students entering CLASS after the ninth grade.

Students must carry at least 4.0 credits in each grade level to be considered a student in good standing, but may carry up to 7.5 credits per grade level. You may choose which courses are used to fulfill each area of study. Or, if you wish, you may let CLASS select some or all of them for you.

Although you can easily construct your curriculum so as not to incur any cost above the basic tuition price, some available course choices do carry additional fees. All additional course fees are listed with the course’s description.

Sample High School Curricula
To illustrate the flexibility of the High School Choice Plan, we have provided a few curriculum samples for students with specific interests. Students are not required to follow any of these plans—even if they have an interest in a sample that is shown.

If your student is interested in specific academic institutions, you should contact them prior to course selection to determine if they have any entrance requirements that must be met.

Following any plan does not guarantee entrance into any particular college or university, nor does it guarantee entrance into any program within a college or university.

  General Education or Vocational Education curriculum (20 credits)
  Basic College Prep curriculum (20 credits)
  Student pursuing engineering (23 credits)
  Student pursuing foreign languages (21 credits)
  Student pursuing history (21 credits)
  Student pursuing law (22 credits)
  Student pursuing mathematics (22 credits)
  Student pursuing the medical sciences (22 credits)
  Student pursuing ministry (23 credits)

Depending on your student’s goals, he or she may take courses beyond the required twenty credits at no additional cost (unless the courses chosen are chargeable courses).
