Morning Program

Morning Program

Our Morning Program begins at 8:00 AM with a morning meeting, after which students meet briefly with their academic advisors to go over their academic plans for the day.

After the first two class periods of the morning, students have a brief break and a mid-morning meeting, in which they might discuss current events, listen to an inspiring story from an entrepreneur who is on campus as part of our Speakers Series, or hear from one of the many college representatives who visit to help our students through the admissions process.

Then it’s back to class for two more periods, after which students carry out some quick clean-up duties before dismissal at 11:30.

How do we manage to fit a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum into three and a half hours? Check out our section on Individualized Instruction to find out. And read about our Work-Study Program to see what our students are up to after the Morning Program ends. Morning Program students are required to adhere to the Morning Program Dress Code, which can be found in the Student Handbook.
