How The New Academic Program Can Benefit Your Child

Work Study and Academics go hand in hand. The academic program continues to be college preparatory, with schedules adjusted accordingly to make sure that the curriculum is fully delivered and covered in four days instead of five. The academic program is arranged so that instructional time is maximized during the four school days and the work does not interfere with the academic program.
