High School Years (Grades 9-12)                               

   Darnell-Cookman high school students will be enrolled in the “Advanced Placement Scholars” college preparatory program and major. This course of study will prepare them for admission to a college or university bachelor degree program in any field of study with the intent to pursue post-graduate professional study. The world of professional medicine will be integrated into all courses throughout the program. The curriculum is an honors level program that includes up to 12 courses in Advanced Placement (AP) credit. The AP courses are taught at the college level and may provide college credit with a student’s successful score on their exams. Thus, a student may have the opportunity to graduate Darnell-Cookman with up to thirty-six college credits through the AP courses. Our curriculum is a rigorous academic program that includes additional requirements beyond the district minimums in Latin, AP math, AP science, AP social studies, and art.

   Students who accept the challenge of Darnell-Cookman will be academically prepared for success in their educational journey through the undergraduate to graduate years of a college or university.
