HS Film Class.jpg

ACS students in Grades 9-12 must complete a rigorous and balanced program of studies in English, Social Studies, World Languages, Mathematics, Science, Creative Arts and Physical Education / Health.  In Grades 9 and 10 courses have been created by ACS teachers to ensure that students are well prepared to enroll in the International Baccalaureate Programme, Advanced Placement courses or general High School courses in Grades 11 and 12.

Note: Additional information can be found in our detailed Program of Studies. The viability of courses will be dependent upon student interest, available staffing, and timetable limitations.
