Through the Extended Campus Program, upper school students have the option of taking college courses off campus (beginning at grade 9), taking on-line courses, and/or working part time during their senior year. Fuqua School maintains close contact with cooperating institutions and employers.
Students wishing to take a course at a college during the school day must secure prior permission from their parents and the Upper School Head. Students must be in good standing academically and behaviorally. In order for the course to be approved, it must 1) be accelerated beyond the scope of the school’s current curriculum, 2) provide subject matter depth beyond the scope of the school’s current curriculum, or 3) cover a subject unavailable on campus. The course must also be taught at a time that will minimally impact the student’s other academic classes. Students must have prior approval if they want to take more than one course per semester. Parents are responsible for arranging for their child’s transportation.
Registration for college classes must be through Fuqua School’s guidance office. Parents/students should not contact the colleges directly.
Students wishing to take an accredited on-line high school course must secure prior permission from their parents and approval of the upper school head. In order to be approved, the course must be 1) a repeat class taken in the summer, 2) a class during the school term that is unavailable due to scheduling conflicts, 3) a summer class for credit needed for advancement to the next grade, or 4) a documented special need.
