Honors course work is offered in all academic and elective subject areas upon approval of the director and guidance counselor. Honors courses represent the highest academic challenge at The Grauer School, and are valued highly by all universities.
Honors work substantially enriches the regular curriculum; students probe subjects with greater depth and demonstrate a higher level of independent scholarship—hence, the School prefers these to AP courses which are comparatively rigid and receive equal credit. Students wishing to obtain college credit are placed in concurrent enrollment at a nearby college.
