Program & Curriculum
Upper School Curriculum
College Preparatory Enrichment Program
We offer more than an education. Our students are not just learning for school but for life from their first days on our online campus to their walk across the commencement stage.
Upper school is an important time in a student’s life academically, socially and emotionally. Our Upper School college prep program offers exceptional course and curriculum options designed to challenge students to think globally, explore, question strategically, work collaboratively, and grow. Nedlof's Virtual College Preparatory Academy offers a complete selection of core academic and elective courses required for graduation and admission to college. An additional wide range of Advanced Placement courses are offered to broaden the Giant Sequoia's experiences.
We emphasize the development of critical thinking, reading, and writing skills throughout our curricular offerings so that students are prepared for the rigor of college-level academics.
UPPER SCHOOL ACADEMIC PROGRAM
GIANT SEQUOIA'S Grades 9-12
Nedlof's Virtual College Preparatory Academy provides students with an inclusive set of high school core courses covering subjects in English, math, science, and social studies. We also offer many elective courses in areas such as foreign languages, digital technology, and fine arts. Students can thrive when colleges and local school systems work together: NVCCPA's existing relationship with colleges will provide our students with the benefits of earning college courses while still in high school; Our Advanced Placement AP and Honors courses are particularly beneficial for college-bound students or any ambitious student who wishes to enhance their study concept and apply them to real world applications.
Each senior embarks on a journey of personal growth with his or her senior project. It's an opportunity for our students to go beyond the classroom and work independently or collaboratively, and present a culminating experiment, pursue independent research, engage in debates and produce a final project.
In ninth grade, we introduce our students to the college admissions process under the guidance of our Counselor Director. For the next three years, we try to build a relationship with him or her during high school and be sure to talk about his or her interests and goals. To broaden their experience, we provide individualized support to students in selecting colleges that fit with their academic record and career goals, and in navigating the application process.
