Every student at Roger Bacon is pushed to reach their highest potential. As a comprehensive school we offer three distinctive tracks: Honors Program, College Preparatory Program and a College/Career Program for students pursuing post-secondary education or employment. Our small class sizes foster an intimate learning environment, which allows for one-on-one instruction with the goal that students are challenged to progress to the next academic level.
This program is an accelerated program of studies for our most academically capable students. Students will complete four credits each in English, Math (including AP® Calculus), Science, and Social Studies; 3-4 years of a foreign language; and quality academic electives. Students taking Advanced Placement courses may earn college credit. Requirements for that credit are determined by the college or university. AP® courses are offered in World History, United States History, English Language, English Literature, Studio Art, Computer Science, Calculus, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. In addition AP® tests in other subject areas may be taken on an individual basis. Students selected for the Honors level are chosen based upon the results of the placement test and current teacher recommendations.
