||The Upper School is comprised of grades nine through twelve and operates on a semester block schedule through which students complete traditional year courses in one semester by taking only four classes at a time rather than seven. This scheduling system increases time-on-task and reduces fragmentation of the instructional day. Class periods last approximately 85 minutes, providing instructional flexibility. In addition to a wide range of courses on campus, including advanced placement and honors options, students are able to take courses at Hampden-Sydney College and Longwood University. Class sizes range from three to twenty-four, with the average size being seventeen.
