High School Curriculum
Courses Specifically Designed for High School Students
Keith McCarthy Academy uses the K12 high school curriculum to serve our students in grades 9–12. The K12 online high school environment blends the best features of the company's world-renowned K–8 learning environment—the elegant and research-driven design, the compelling interactivity, the ease of use of both online and offline content—with key features designed to make the high school experience successful, given the far more complex high school world of content, skills, and time management.
A Robust Catalog of Courses Meets the Needs of Diverse Learners
The K12 High School Course Catalog is robust, offering more than 60 courses. K12 Math, Language Arts, Science, and History courses are offered in multiple versions to meet the needs of diverse learners with diverse goals. Students can chart their own course, choosing from among the four levels of courses to match their aptitude and goals.
Four Versions of Core Subjects
With the K12 high school curriculum, students can harness the power of individualized learning by choosing from the following four versions of Math, English, Science, and History courses:
- K12 Core courses are similar to the standard courses offered by many other programs. They meet all academic requirements for each course area both for graduation as well as for potential admission into a wide range of colleges.
- K12 Comprehensive courses are designed for students entering with a strong foundational knowledge and aptitude in the subject area being covered, as well as solid study skills.
- K12 Honors courses hold students to a greater degree of accountability, and demand even greater independence and self-discipline than their Comprehensive counterparts.
- K12 Advanced Placement (AP®) courses are college-level courses that follow curriculum specified by the College Board. Like K12 Honors courses, AP® courses require a greater degree of self-discipline for in-depth study of the subject.
