The course of study is to serve as a guide for what a student may take during 4 years of online Christian high school at Wilson Hill Academy. Please see the Graduation Requirements for a list of required courses. Advanced Placement® courses are marked with AP®.  Note also that there are two "tracks" in Math and Science, determined primarily by whether the student has completed Algebra 1 before the 9th grade.

* The Great Conversation 1+4 is recommended for students who are new to Wilson Hill Academy and have not been exposed to Homer and other writers from the classical period.  Note that it is a year long course to be taken in either 9th OR 10th grade. It is not a 2 year course.

** Advanced Composition 1 & 2 constitute the recommended sequence for continuing students.  These classes meet once weekly and focus on the writing process. Fundamentals of Academic Writing is recommended for students who are new to the Wilson Hill Academy composition sequence or who have completed LA4 but need more confidence and practice. Composition is integrated into the Rhetoric 1 & 2 sequence in grades 11 & 12.  See individual course description pages for more detail.

*** Note that the US Government & Economics is a combination class intended to satisfy state requirements for one semester for each area.  The two subjects are taught in a unified manner, but the focus is on government in the fall and economics in the spring. AP® US History will replace the previously-offered US History Survey course beginning 2024.  For purposes of meeting graduation requirements, AP®Art History is counted as a Fine Arts elective (not History).
