- CP Level (College prep) - This level focuses on modeling and guided practice which helps students progress as independent learners. The pace of this class provides students with a strong foundation of college level learning.
- CCP Level (Competitive College Prep) - This level focuses on individual and collaborative learning experiences. The pace of these courses prepares students for college level learning.
- H/AP Level (Honors or Advanced Placement) - This instructional level balances individual inquiry and collaborative analysis. Rigorous coursework frequently extends beyond a typical high school curricula. Advanced Placement courses may also qualify the student for college credit.
