High School covers grades 9 to 12 (for children ages 13+). Our high school curriculum follows the Common Core system and is designed to engage students with different learning styles and abilities. Our platform uses cutting-edge technologies and tools, and our courses offer in-depth knowledge aligned with multimedia lessons. Through core subjects and a wide variety of electives, we help students discover their interests and get a solid foundation for university.
In addition, and aside from being Cognia accredited, our curriculum is NCAA approved, which enables our high school graduates who are athletes to apply to the US colleges within the NCAA network.
Aside from getting good and well-rounded knowledge, students enrolled in the High School Program develop other skills that would be useful to them at university. They refine their time management skills, personal organization skills, and online communication, and they become comfortable with the Internet, Email, online learning platforms, video conference programs, etc.
The High School program consists of 4 core and 2 elective courses. Our high school students have a wide range of electives to choose from. The core courses are divided into 2 semesters per grade level, while some elective courses can be contained in a single course. Upon the completion of 26 courses (24 full credits), students will be eligible for graduation.
Some universities in the Netherlands require 3-4 Advanced Placement courses (college-level courses) which we offer. AP tests are conducted worldwide in May. Registration and payment for AP courses is the student's responsibility. Click here for more information.
High School courses can be taken at different levels: Regular, Honors and AP. Honors classes require students to complete more work than in regular courses, and AP classes can be even more rigorous and demanding. While honors classes feature advanced high school coursework, AP classes are designed to mirror college-level coursework. In both honors and AP classes, difficulty level varies by subject.
Each of the High School Program courses is divided into 2 semesters per grade level and are based on the Common Core System.

Upon the finalization of any high school grade, we issue an educational transcript to our students. That is an official document that proves that a student has successfully completed the grade. The final high school diploma, issued at the completion of 12th grade, is an international diploma that is accredited by Cognia and accepted by universities around the world, including the Netherlands.
