The Advanced Placement (AP) Honors Program: AP-Honor Course Sequence
Stanton’s Advanced Placement/Honors Program of Study is a rigorous Pre-University academic progression where all of the student’s core courses (Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics) are offered at either Honors or Advanced Placement level. A student progressing through the 12th grade and graduating from the Stanton AP/Honors Program will have completed study in a minimum of 9 Advanced Placement courses and would have had access to many more throughout their progression. In an annual survey that the National Association for College Admission Counseling conducts, "The Admission Trends Survey," the category that consistently ranks at the top of desirable characteristics of high school students is “Grades In College Prep Courses.” With that thought in mind, Stanton’s Advanced Placement/Honors students prepare themselves for the rigor of college curricula as well as college admissions through the Advanced Placement/Honors Program.
The International Baccalaureate Program: IB Course Sequence
The IB program is a rigorous, two-year, pre-university liberal arts course of study that meets the needs of highly motivated and academically oriented 11th and 12th grade students. Designed as an interdisciplinary curriculum, the IB program allows the student to apply their theoretical knowledge to practical and experimental situations. Additionally, the IB program attempts to provide students with the academic training that will promote their intellectual and personal development. At Stanton we strive to equip students with the skills and attitudes necessary for success in higher education and employment.
