Honors and Advanced Placement Courses

Flexible by Design

In order to provide students the best academic experience, a flexible scheduling model is essential. As such, schedules are customized to meet each student’s academic goals and abilities every year. At Saint Francis, students are never tracked into specific courses.

Freshmen are placed in honors classes based on their test scores, grades and recommendations. In the upper level courses, students elect their own placement according to their academic performance and college goals.
