The Upper School Curriculum is divided into three programs of study: the General Program, the Academic Program and the Honors Program.
Selection of a program of study for each individual student will be made cooperatively by students, parents, and Academy personnel. Selection will be made in the spring of the year prior to a student’s entry into the 9th grade or in case of a student transferring, prior to the student’s attending classes. Brunswick Academy requires 21 credits for graduation to be completed in Grades 8-12.
