Electives Program Overview

student reading without distraction

In our high school study skills course and other elective classes, students learn to overcome distractions to become better students.

Students using The Williamsburg Curriculum take several leadership courses to graduate, leaving room for only three elective credits. Further, to increase probability of being admitted to competitive college programs, many students using The Williamsburg Curriculum choose to take two credits of second language, leaving room for only one additional elective. Therefore, we offer few electives.

Students may apply excess credit in any other program towards satisfying their required elective credits. For example, if you have 4.0 Science credits (only 3.0 are required for graduation), the extra science credit will automatically decrease your required elective credits by 1.0 credit. The description of each elective course provides all related details.
