Our students often take six courses per trimester, including various elective offerings totalling 72 possible credits. Students must have earned a minimum of 15 credits to become a sophomore, 30 credits to become a junior, and 45 credits to become a senior. A student who fails more than one course may not be promoted to the next grade. With the approval of the Academic Dean students may enroll in a summer school program to remedy such deficiencies and proceed to the next grade.
New students are pre-registered for courses in the admissions process. Current students start the process of course registration for the next academic year in the spring.
Students may withdraw from a course without penalty during the first three (3) weeks of school (for year-long courses), or the first two (2) weeks of a trimester course. The Academic Dean may reschedule students without penalty to the student. Students seeking to withdraw from a course must discuss the reason for the change with their advisor and secure the approval of the Academic Dean. Advisors will be notified of course adjustments.
Formal Academic Support
The Chesapeake Learning Center and English as a second Language support are provided on the bais of current testing and diagnoses, such as a professional assessment that documents a learning difference or need for English language support. Testing is reviewed by the Director of the Chesapeake Learning Center or the Director of ESL. Final enrollment in the support programs is approved by the Academic Dean.
Transcripts are signed and mailed by the Academic Dean's office. Only students whose financial obligations to the Academy have been satisfied are elible for transcript release.
