Students and parents should be familiar with Academy and CISD graduation requirements and make careful plans for taking required and elective courses. The sample four-year Academy plan with seven courses per year suggests sequences for taking required courses. Courses that meet Academy graduation requirements are listed in bold. Academy students must be enrolled in a minimum of three (3) Academy courses each year to maintain membership in the Academy.
Co-curricular Academy requirements that are accomplished outside the school day are listed in italics.
We expect that Academy students do NOT take early release or late arrival, and that they take as many Academy courses as possible
1NOTE: Explorations, R&P Project and Internship are co-curricular – done outside of the school day.
